(AP) -- President Joe Biden is drawing a red line on his $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan.

He says he is open to compromise on how to pay for the plan but inaction is unacceptable.

The president turned fiery in a Wednesday afternoon speech, saying that the United States must build, invest and research for the future. Biden says failure to do so would amount to giving up on “leading the world.”

President Biden delivers remarks on the "historic investments in the American Jobs Plan" at the White House.

Biden allowed that “compromise is inevitable.” He says the administration will be open to “good ideas in good faith negotiations.”

But he added: “We will not be open to doing nothing.”
