Job Creators Network President Lambasts Those Who Voted for Infrastructure Deal

Press ReleaseJuly 28, 2021

Washington, D.C. (July 28, 2021) – Tonight, the Senate voted to move forward on the bipartisan infrastructure deal.

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

Senate Republicans are making a big mistake supporting the Democrat-led bipartisan infrastructure framework, and they should oppose it when the bill comes up for a final vote. The Biden administration already spent $1.9 trillion the country doesn’t have earlier this year and is threatening to spend another $3.5 trillion through reconciliation. The $1.2 trillion of spending in this infrastructure deal will spur inflation, which is already at historic levels and hurting small businesses that can least afford it. The bill is more reckless spending on Democrat priorities like electric car infrastructure and public transit boondoggles. Any funds leftover from previous Covid-19 spending bills should be returned to American taxpayers who know how to use their money better than the federal government or spent to fund the Entree Act to help restaurants still recovering from forced government shutdowns. Before the country can think about improving its physical infrastructure, it must get its fiscal house in order, stop burdening future generations with debt, and help bring small businesses back.
