Yet legislation encoding this deal has yet to be written, much less passed. Chuck Schumer, the Senate majority leader, said after the filibuster was evaded that he wanted the infrastructure bill and a budget resolution to pass before the August recess. The budget resolution is necessary for the Democrats to begin the filibuster-proof process known as reconciliation, by which they want to enact a $3.5trn bill to finance child care and education and to confront climate change.

然而,對這項協議進行編碼的立法尚未成文,更不用說通過了。參議院多數黨領袖查克·舒默在拖延戰術被繞過后表示,他希望基礎設施法案和預算決議能在8月休會前獲得通過。對于民主黨人來說,預算決議是開啟“和解”程序的必要條件。通過和解程序,他們希望通過一項3.5萬億美元的法案,為兒童保育和教育提供資金并應對氣候變化。

Republican senators do not want to be seen as enabling the budget bill by supporting the infrastructure one. Yet for many Democrats, including the House speaker, Nancy Pelosi, the two are yoked together. Ms Pelosi has said she will not consider the bipartisan bill until the Senate passes the reconciliation package.

共和黨參議員不希望因為支持基礎設施法案而被視為批準了預算法案。然而,對許多民主黨人來說,包括眾議院議長南?!づ迓逦?,這兩者是捆綁在一起的。佩洛西表示,在參議院通過和解方案之前,她不會考慮這項兩黨議案。

For Mr Biden, the challenge ahead within his party is formidable. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a progressive force in the House, reacted with fury on Twitter, threatening to torpedo the infrastructure deal and noting the Senate negotiators were all white: "Good luck tanking your own party's investment on childcare, climate action, and infrastructure while presuming you'll survive a 3 vote House margin—especially after choosing to exclude members of colour from negotiations and calling that a 'bipartisan accomplishment'," she wrote.

對拜登來說,黨內面臨的挑戰是艱巨的。眾議院的進步力量亞歷山德里婭·奧卡西奧-科爾特斯在推特上憤怒回應,威脅要破壞基礎設施協議,并指出參議院的談判代表都是白人:她寫道:“就算你能在眾議院獲得3票優勢,我也祝你所在政黨在兒童保育、氣候行動和基礎設施方面的投資受挫——尤其是在選擇將有色人種成員排除在談判之外,并稱之為‘兩黨成就’之后?!?/p>

Now, Mr Jennings notes, "Joe Biden is going to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and saying, 'I need you to vote for this thing that Mitch McConnell is for.'" If the infrastructure bill then fails, it will be the progressives, not Mr McConnell and his Republicans, who will have crushed Mr Biden's bipartisan dream.

現在,詹寧斯指出,“喬·拜登正要去見亞歷山德里婭·奧卡西奧-科爾特斯,他會說,‘我需要你投票支持米奇·麥康奈爾支持的這件事?!比绻A設施法案最終失敗,粉碎拜登兩黨夢的將會是進步派,而不是麥康奈爾和他的共和黨人。
