WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement after President Biden ended infrastructure talks with a group of Senate Republicans that he was a part of.
“The president has made it clear that he has no intention of agreeing to a plan that addresses core, physical infrastructure.
“President Biden and his team are trying to satisfy an insatiable far-left agenda that demands massive tax hikes and spending trillions of dollars on things unrelated to physical infrastructure.
“In return for our multiple, significant offers to invest in our roads, bridges, ports, airports, and waterways, the president continues to seek a massive tax and spend plan.
“Republicans are serious about passing a responsible, targeted infrastructure plan that truly meets the needs of America, without adding the burdens of higher taxes, more federal debt, and job-killing regulations.
“We are ready to work with Democrats who recognize a bipartisan agreement on physical infrastructure is possible.”
