Rob Portman To Biden
The Democratic president had recently given a statement stating that he would only approve over those bills if it was passed side by side. This remark of his took the politicians belonging to the Republican party by surprise. It also angered them to a great extent. Many influential Republican politicians came forth to express their disappointment over Biden’s statement. They included Mitch McConnell, the minority leader of the Senate, and Senator Rob Portman.
The 65-year-old Ohio Senator gave a statement following the release of Biden’s statement at a platform of one of the popular news channels. Rob Portman claimed that almost all the leaders of his party felt blindsided by whatever had been said by the President. They had no idea that the two bills were connected to one another.
The interview was held this week. He then continued by claiming that he felt better now as it had been cleared out that the two bills were not linked. The Senator then gave a heads up with regard to the fate of the bill stating that the bipartisan bill can now move forth. Rob Portman also acknowledged the popularity of the bill among both the Congressmen as well as the citizens of the country.
