On Tuesday, The Senate voted to pass a $1.2 Trillion “infrastructure bill” and the bill now moves to the Democrat-controlled House. 19 Republican Senators voted along with all 50 Democrat senators to pass this “bipartisan spending bill”

Here are all the Republican Senators who voted for this bill:

  • Roy Blunt (Mo)
  • Richard Burr (N.C.)
  • Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.)
  • Bill Cassidy (La)
  • Susan Collins (Maine)
  • Kevin Cramer (N.D.)
  • Mike Crapo (Idaho)
  • Deb Fischer (Neb.)
  • Lindsey Graham (S.C.)
  • Chuck Grassley (Iowa)
  • John Hoeven (N.D.)
  • Mitch McConnell (Ky)
  • Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
  • Rob Portman (Ohio)
  • James E. Risch (Idaho)
  • Mitt Romney (Utah)
  • Dan Sullivan (Alaska)
  • Thom Tillis (N.C.)
  • Roger F. Wicker (Miss.)

Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana commented on the contents of this bill: “They told us it was a real infrastructure bill. It’s not; only 23% of the bill is real infrastructure, the rest is Green New Deal and welfare. They told us the bill was paid for; it isn’t, we’re gonna have to borrow maybe up to $400 billion to pay for it. They told us there were no tax increases. There are.”

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who voted in favor of Biden’s spending bill, had strongly opposed a similar spending bill proposed by President Trump in 2016. Trump had campaigned on actual infrastructure spending that McConnel opposed. President Trump’s spending plan was much lower than that of this current Biden bill and a majority of this is going to things like Green New Deal and other SJW causes than actual infrastructure.

President Trump weighed in over the weekend calling out McConnell: “Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill is a disgrace. If Mitch McConnell was smart, which we’ve seen no evidence of, he would use the debt ceiling card to negotiate a good infrastructure package.”
