PowerUp: Rep. Bryan Steil on Biden’s infrastructure boondoggle

MADISON — While President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats take a victory lap over Friday’s passage of a $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” package, American taxpayers will be picking up the tab for years to come.

U.S. Rep. Bryan Steil (R-Janesville) voted against a measure that marks less than 10 percent of the spending measure to roads and bridges, what most Americans think of when they hear the word “infrastructure.”

“They’re going to make price increases and inflation worse in a period of time where people are paying more at the gas pumps, they’re paying more at the grocery store,” Steil told Empower Wisconsin’s M.D. Kittle Monday on the Vicki McKenna Show.

Democrats insist the bill, now awaiting Biden’s signature, will support good-paying jobs, fix America’s roads and bridges, and expand broadband access. Steil and his Republican colleagues say Democrats are shoving billions of dollars in wasteful programs down the throats of Americans.

“And they continue to do so with this lie that it will cost (Americans) zero dollars,” he said.

Congressman Bryan Steil is our guest on this edition of PowerUp, Empower Wisconsin’s podcast.
