Roy Blunt, the chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, implored Democrats to focus on the traditional pillars of infrastructure - "roads, bridges, ports and airports" - and not the more expansive spending Biden envisions to create jobs, fight climate change and stand up to a rising China.
