Conservatives Outraged After 13 Republicans Help Pelosi And Democrats Pass Infrastructure Bill


Democrats spent the entire day on Friday trying to pass their infrastructure bill in the House of Representatives.

They finally achieved their goal late at night, and they did it with the help of 13 Republicans.

Conservatives are understandably outraged.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Thirteen Republicans under fire for breaking ranks on infrastructure bill

Thirteen GOP lawmakers came under fire after bucking the party line and voting in favor of the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, with several defending their decisions Saturday morning.

The lawmakers were slammed by those on the Right, such as Georgia Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene , for their votes in favor of the infrastructure bill, after which several of the 13 lawmakers took to Twitter to defend their votes.

Republican Reps. Don Bacon of Nebraska, Don Young of Alaska, Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Andrew Garbarino and John Katko of New York, and David McKinley of West Virginia were among those who defended their decision to cross the aisle.

“This bill is a win,” Katko said in his statement posted to Twitter, adding that the bill will create a “once in a generation investment in our nation’s physical infrastructure including our roads and bridges, ports and waterways, broadband networks, electrical grid, clean water systems, and airports.”

Some of these guys are already planning to retire. The ones who don’t will likely face a primary.

This was a really dumb move by these Republicans. Especially after such a great week of elections.
