Heritage Action: Republicans Must Oppose Trojan Horse for Liberal Agenda

Press Releases · Jul 28, 2021

WASHINGTON — Heritage Action, a leading conservative grassroots organization, released the following statement from Executive Director Jessica Anderson concerning the vote on cloture on the motion to proceed to the more than $1 trillion infrastructure bill.

The Senate is moving forward with a vote on an infrastructure bill negotiated behind closed doors that is nothing more than a trojan horse for the grab bag of leftist policies in the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package. Any American concerned by skyrocketing everyday expenses created by Bidenflation should be appalled by this so-called bipartisan infrastructure agreement.

Democratic Senators have acted in bad faith during this “compromise” infrastructure agreement, packing the bill with less funding for roads, bridges, and highways than for Amtrak earmarks, Leftist climate change and resiliency funding, and subsidies for electric vehicles.

On behalf of taxpaying Americans who are sick and tired of the Left’s reckless tax and spending spree, no Republican Senator should support either part of this “infrastructure-in-name-only” package.
