Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Monday that he does not expect any Republican colleagues to support President Biden's multi-trillion dollar spending proposals.

The Kentucky Republican said he does not believe any of his GOP colleagues will back "the $4.1 trillion dollar grab bag, which has infrastructure in it, but a whole lot of other stuff." 

President Biden has proposed both the American Jobs Plan as well as the American Families plan. Some Senate Republicans have put forward a proposal focused strictly on infrastructure. 

"Summing it up, we're happy to take a look at an infrastructure package that's what basically both sides agree is infrastructure and we're not willing to pay for it by undoing the 2017 tax bill," McConnell said.
