Just the vote to proceed, but it looks like nothing is stopping it now.

The Senate voted Wednesday to advance a bipartisan infrastructure plan, a critical step toward Democrats passing their sweeping economic agenda.

Senators voted 67-32 to push the bill forward; 17 Republicans and all 50 Democrats voted yes.

Could have been better, but patriot smiley

Trump threatened to primary GOP lawmakers who favor the bipartisan infrastructure plan. 17 Republicans just voted to advance it, including Mitch McConnell.

Whittling away.

That leaves the GQP with 37 spineless weasels - a darn-sight better than the 50 they went into this with.

Unfortunately, Sen. Sinema is against the Democratic-only infrastructure bill that will use reconciliation.

My GOP Senator, from Pennsylvania which is neck-deep in rusting infrastructure, who is not even seeking reelection, and with the cover of 17 other GOP senators available including Mitch, did not vote for this. What "deal" does he think he's getting from the GOP in exchange for voting "no"?

Probably protecting his reputation so that he can get his next gig.

Wingnut welfare is a thing. Really. And the only thing that can screw it up is heresy.

Simultaneously reasonable and reprehensible.
