The infamous “infrastructure bill.”
Yeah, that one. The $1.2 trillion monstrosity that ACTUALLY seems to be about anything but infrastructure.
Phillip Klein, editor of National Review Online, has gone as far as to say this garbage that’s proceeding in the Senate is nothing but “A pathetic surrender that has been built on a mountain of lies.”
Klein’s harsh stance is notable because this is no Trump supporter, in fact, he de-registered as a republican in 2016 specifically to oppose The Donald.
Here’s some of what Klein had to say on the issue:
“Republicans have helped put President Biden several steps closer to passing his top legislative priority in voting multiple times to advance an unnecessary and costly infrastructure bill that will pave the way for Democrats to pass their multi-trillion dollar social agenda. This is a pathetic surrender that has been built on a mountain of lies.
Republicans who voted for this monstrosity claimed that the infrastructure bill they negotiated would be fully paid for. It isn’t. They claimed it would narrowly focus on traditional infrastructure such as fixing roads and bridges. It doesn’t. They claimed it would help convince moderate Democrats to abandon Biden’s larger bill. It won’t.
Republicans have voted for a bill that will add to the deficits at a time when debt as a share of the economy is on track to break the World War II record this year, according to Biden’s own budget. And at a time when inflation is on the rise.
This is a reckless and irresponsible action from a policy perspective and malpractice from a political perspective. If Republicans lose big time in 2022, they have nobody but themselves to blame.”
