Press ReleaseJuly 28, 2021


Today, a bipartisan group of senators reached a deal on a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package. The Senate could vote as soon as tonight to advance the proposal, according to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

Alfredo Ortiz, President and CEO of the Job Creators Network (JCN), released the following statement:

“Senate Republicans should vote against cloture. We are already experiencing the worst inflation in four decades because of President Biden’s reckless spending. Senate Republicans should not be complicit in another round of spending that will set inflation even higher. Inflation is a growing concern for small business owners, according to the new JCN Foundation Monthly Monitor poll. Republicans can’t claim to be pro-business and then vote for an inflationary spending bill like this one, especially when Democrats have vowed to pass an additional massive spending bill on their own on the heels of this deal.”
