Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) on Monday argued that President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure deal is authentically just the Democrats’ Green New Deal. Blackburn noted during an interview on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria” that Biden’s “boondoggle” has very few “components that you would call infrastructure.” She integrated it is “astounding” Democrats cerebrate they can get away with calling the package an infrastructure deal when it has “more mazuma for electric cars than there is for highways.”
“[W]e have been fascinated with having a long-term conveyance or highway bill or infrastructure bill, but this Biden boondoggle is only six percent on roads and bridges and highways and interstates and components that you would call infrastructure,” Blackburn declared. “Indeed, if you put the electric grid and broadband and ports and airports and waterways into it, you only get to 37 percent of the bill, so let’s fixate on infrastructure. That is what people want to optically discern. We have counties in our state that want to rehabilitate roads and bridges, and they are not able to because of federal regulation, I am verbally expressing let’s hoist those regulations, and let them repair these roads and bridges without federal regime interference.”
“Well … is this more of a green deal than anything else, this so soi-disant infrastructure package?” host Maria Bartiromo asked. “Absolutely,” Blackburn replied. “Yes, this is the Green New “Deal,”” she integrated. “And it is more of an energy bill. You have more mazuma in this soi-disant infrastructure bill, for Green New Deal components and electric cars. There is more mazuma for electric cars than there is for highways. It is astounding that they cerebrate they can get by with this.”
