ANCHOR: Jamie Harrison believes what Joe Biden told the nation this week — Republicans are laser focused on putting up roadblocks to the Biden agenda.
CHAIR HARRISON: They didn’t pass a platform in 2020, they don’t have a platform or agenda in 2021 or 2022. The only thing that they are focused on is blocking progress made by Joe Biden—and that’s sad, because what they are doing is they are hurting America.

CHAIR HARRISON: Elections are about contrast. Again, what are Democrats doing in order to improve the lives of the people in Pennsylvania? Well, we have a track record of showing what we have done for Pennsylvania. Look at the president’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Something that Donald Trump tried for four years, along with Republicans in the House and Senate, and weren’t able to get done.
But this president, with the leadership in the House and the Senate, Democrats were able to get $11.3 billion for highways. $1.6 billion for bridges in Pennsylvania. $100 million for broadband. $355 million for airports. And that’s not even going into the American Rescue Plan, where not one Republican actually worked to help bring some relief for the people in Pennsylvania.

CHAIR HARRISON: The American Rescue Plan and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill were huge. Unprecedented. I mean, just take a few provisions out of one of the bills and that would have amounted to the big success story for any administration or any presidency.
