President Biden met with bipartisan senators on Thursday to discuss the contours of a potential infrastructure package, warning that if the U.S. does not invest in the issue, China is "going to eat our lunch." "I've been around long enough ... that it used to be that infrastructure wasn't a Democrat or a Republican issue. There are not many Republican or Democratic roads and bridges," Biden said in the Oval Office. Biden said he hoped to come to "some kind of generic consensus" on how to move forward with the group. Four senators attended the meeting: Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.), who chairs the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee; ranking member Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.); Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.); and Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.).
