Jim Banks Calls on Republicans to Oppose ‘Fake Infrastructure Deal’
Breitbart ^ | 09.23.2021 | Sean Moran

House Republican Study Committee (RSC) Chairman Jim Banks (R-IN) told Breitbart News during a press conference Tuesday that Republicans should oppose the “fake” $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill.

Democrat leadership said that the House will vote on the $1.2 trillion so-called bipartisan infrastructure bill, otherwise known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, on September 27. The bill, which faced significant opposition from Senate conservatives, passed with the help of 19 Senate Republicans in August.

Axios reported Monday that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) might rely on House moderate Republicans to pass the legislation, as many progressive Democrats may oppose the bill. Politico reported that House Republican leadership expects fewer than a dozen House Republicans to vote for the bill. Many House GOP moderates could likely vote against the bill, as House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) oppose it.

A House GOP leadership aide told Breitbart News that the only Republicans that could potentially support the bill would be moderates, but that would largely depend on whether the larger $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill passes. The aide said many GOP moderates would not vote for this bill if the reconciliation bill passes.

A senior House GOP aide told Breitbart News that it remains doubtful Democrats have the votes to pass it within their own party, which could likely lead to the bill’s demise. The aide said:

They better, or they are going to be removed from office, on their next Primary.

Also, all moderate democrats should oppose it. If you are an American, you should oppose it.

Yes, Democrats seem to be in big disarray lately. Schumer and Pelosi cannot holt their troupes together anymore.
It would be foolish to help them to pass this stupid waste of money and give them political victory.
Four years ago, no Democrat voted for the Obamacare reform.
I think, at least, this should the the payback time.
