    Fifth House Republican comes out in support of bipartisan infrastructure bill......

    Rep. Don Bacon (R-Neb.) came out in support of the bipartisan infrastructure bill Thursday, becoming the fifth House Republican to do so.


    The five Republicans are backing the Senate-passed bill despite the fact that their leadership team is whipping members against it.


    "First of all, I think we need hard infrastructure. I worked on this bill from the beginning as part of the Problem Solvers so it's been a half-Republican, half-Democrat effort," Bacon told reporters. "I think it's an area we can show Congress working."


    GOP Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.), Adam Kinzinger (Ill.), Tom Reed (N.Y.) and Fred Upton (Mich.) have also publicly signaled that they will support the infrastructure bill according to The Hill's whip list.


    To pass this legislation, House Democrats can only afford to lose about three votes from their party without any help from Republicans.....snip~

    These GOP mopes can't figure out how Pelosi tricked their dumbasses. More RINOS to chase out of the GOP.

    Infrastructure spending is important. But this bill is majority not infrastructure spending.

    Mark them as targets in the primary. I'm good on real infrastructure spending. Infrastructure is an investment. They cannot show payback on most of this spending. That is the definition of waste. Spending with negative return.

    This is insanity. Any Republican who votes for it or supports it must be replaced.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    The far-left socialist Democrats won't let this pass if they don't get the $6.5T they want for spending.
    Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.
