ニュートギングリッチ: 共和党の上院議員1人がなぜこれに投票したのか理解できません. It didn’t meet any of the standards they promised. It isn’t paid for. It isn’t restricted just to infrastructure. It does have tax increases in it.
It has all sorts of left-wing proposals and projects and ideas. It massively pays off Schumer in New York City with what I think is [AN] enormously expensive [Hudson River rail] tunnel that probably is larger than half the states’ share of the infrastructure part of this and it has no really serious reforms in it.
I can’t imagine how these Republicans can go home and with a straight face suggest that they voted for something that’s truly bipartisan.
And of course it’s all gonna get worse in the House because [Speaker Nancy] Pelosi’s running a dictatorship and she has absolute control.
