McConnell says GOP Will Not Support massive Infrastructure Bill

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that Republicans won’t go along with President Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan, a roughly $2 trillion proposal Biden proudly declared would be the largest “investment in American jobs” in over seven decades.

McConnell, speaking at an event in Kentucky, emphasized concerns with the amount of spending that would be required to finance the plan, according to POLITICO. “That package that they’re putting together now, as much as we would like to address infrastructure, is not going to get support from our side.

“You’re either alarmed about the level of national debt and the future impact of that on our children and our grandchildren or you aren’t,” he said. “My view of infrastructure is we ought to build that which we can afford, and not either whack the economy with major tax increases or run up the national debt even more.”
