REVEALED: Pilot plan to tax drivers by the MILE is hidden in Biden's $1.2trillion infrastructure plan https://t.co/VKjVGm77Ma— Daily Mail US (@DailyMail) August 10, 2021
The same people who refused to fund Trump’s border wall and who blocked Trump’s MAGA agenda and who lost control of Congress as a result folded on this and gave Joe Biden a big win.
“The Senate voted 69-30on Tuesday to pass the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package, handing a major victory to President Biden and a group of senators that spent months negotiating on the agreement.
Why it matters: The monster bill would deliver hundreds of billions of dollars for roads, bridges, waterways and other “hard infrastructure” items. It is widely seen as a victory for both parties and the reputation of the Senate, especially given the current level of polarization in Congress. …“
To be sure, they will now say that they have already passed a large infrastructure package and there is no point in spending another $3.5 trillion dollars. They will likely win that argument too.
Note: Independent voters support basic infrastructure spending, but are much more skeptical of Joe Biden’s spending and economic policies.
