Sen. Ron Wyden, a Democrat from OR and chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said in a statement Monday: "I'm pleased by the parliamentarian's ruling that budget resolutions can be revised, allowing us to consider moving additional bills through the reconciliation process".
The Democratic president wants to invest about $ 2 trillion in eight years.
U.S. President Joe Biden would be willing to push through his $2 trillion infrastructure plan without the support of Republican lawmakers if he can not reach a bipartisan deal, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said on Sunday. In addition, the plans would create new incentives for investment in research and headquarters jobs in the United States. He also praises the contribution they will make to American society.
But the International Monetary Fund backed the overall idea of richer countries using taxes to reduce inequalities exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, including progressive income taxes, inheritance and property taxes, and taxes on "excess" corporate profits.
The Democratic plan would not repeal those taxes, but modify them to equalize their rates and move them closer to the main corporate rate.
And now, faced with the possibility of a tax increase, Manchin believes the 28 percent rate is too high.

"Come on, man. Let's get real". "That's why he felt it was a responsible proposal to make", Psaki said of Biden.
The Senate drafters do not specify the exact new tax rates associated with their plan or how much additional tax revenue it would raise, choosing instead to wait and set rates to match Democrats' spending ambitions later this year. "When people think of infrastructure, they think of roads, bridges, ports and airports", he claimed.
Speaking to Immigration and Customs Enforcement staffers last week, Mayorkas revealed that Customs and Border Protection officials had submitted a plan for the construction moving forward, according to notes from the meeting reviewed by the Washington Times.
Biden's plans have drawn criticism from both Republicans and Democrats, including Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, whose support could be critical to ensuring passage in a Senate split evenly between the two parties.
Biden, whose agenda is focused heavily on addressing racial and gender inequities, said other countries were investing billions of dollars in infrastructure, and the United States needed to do so as well to boost its competitiveness.
