Higgins Votes Against $1.2T Infrastructure Bill


Date: Nov. 5, 2021
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) released the following statement after voting against the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and the rule on Democrats' reconciliation bill, which a Penn Wharton Budget Model shows will cost nearly $4 trillion.

"I have done everything in my power to stop the oppressive socialist agenda, the accelerated enactment of the Democrats' plan to dominate America. This so-called infrastructure bill is a significant part of that agenda. The bill is 9% roads and bridges and 91% socialist garbage. It's a losing deal for Louisiana, further seizure of power by the thieves in suits of DC, and an advancement of a plan so diabolical I am unable even to write of it here, today. No real Republican should support either of these insidious bills."
