Job Creators Network Calls Out Reckless Spending in $1.2 Trillion Infrastructure-In-Name-Only Bill

Washington, D.C. (August 10, 2021) – Today, the Senate passed a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill.

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of the Job Creators Network, responded with the following statement: 

“Democrats’ $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill is more reckless spending on long-held Democratic priorities like railroads, public transit, and electric charging stations. The bill is infrastructure in name only. According to a new analysis by the Committee to Unleash Prosperity, only one in four dollars in the bill goes to roads, bridges, and airports. Adding insult, the bill is partly paid for by delaying President Trump’s prescription drug rebate rule that would have significantly lowered drug prices for seniors. This bill is just table ante for Democrats’ $3.5 trillion socialist bill that will quickly follow. This unprecedented spending will fuel inflation, which is already giving workers a “Biden pay cut” in the form of lower real wages and is the biggest concern among small businesses, according to the Job Creators Network Foundation’s Monthly Monitor poll. The media champions this infrastructure bill as “bipartisan,” but a better way to describe it is just another example of Republican Stockholm Syndrome.”

On Friday, Breitbart published an op-ed by Alfredo Ortiz calling on conservatives to reprise their successful efforts defeating the cap and trade bill 12 years ago to fight this reckless spending during the summer recess. Read it HERE
