In The States: Democrats Applaud President Biden’s Leadership in Securing Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

Following the Senate’s passage of President Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure plan, which will create millions of good-paying jobs and help American businesses grow by investing in our country’s infrastructure, Democrats across the country praised President Biden and Democrats’ ability to reach across the aisle and deliver results for families across the country. See for yourself:

In Arizona: 

Arizona Democratic Party: “Thanks to the tireless work of President Biden and Arizona Senators Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema, the bipartisan infrastructure package is on track to deliver unprecedented investments in local communities that will create a generation of good-paying jobs and grow our economy sustainably and equitably for years to come. […] Voters will not forget that President Biden and Democrats delivered in six months what Donald Trump and congressional Republicans couldn’t in four years: Unprecedented funding to repair crumbling roads and bridges, access to clean drinking water for every Arizona household, and expanded broadband connectivity to even the most remote communities in Arizona. Promises made, promises kept.”

In Wisconsin:

Democratic Party of Wisconsin: “After blatantly ignoring calls from local community leaders and residents, Ron Johnson has cast his vote against the bipartisan infrastructure plan, taking his standing with Wisconsinites to an all-time low. What’s best for Wisconsin isn’t even an afterthought for Ron Johnson. […] Thankfully, we have leaders like President Biden and Senator Baldwin who are tireless advocates for Wisconsin’s working families and small businesses. Democrats have delivered an infrastructure deal that will deliver $79 million for electric vehicles and clean energy solutions, $100 million for expanded broadband access, $595 million to improve public transportation, $5.2 billion for highway repairs, and $225 million for bridges repairs across the state.”

In Georgia:

Democratic Party of Georgia: “Georgians sent President Biden to the White House to bring people together and deliver historic progress for our state, and today’s passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal shows that he is delivering on his promise. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill devotes billions of dollars to repairing and upgrading Georgia’s core infrastructure — including roads and bridges, ports and waterways, railroads, the electrical grid, broadband, and more — while creating millions of good-paying American jobs, helping our businesses compete in the global economy, and not costing a single dime to Georgia families making under $400,000 a year. These are once-in-a-generation investments for Georgia families, workers, and communities.”

In New Hampshire:

New Hampshire Democratic Party: “Thanks to the leadership of Senator Shaheen and Senator Hassan, this bipartisan infrastructure deal will help expand high-speed internet to Granite Staters and deliver much-needed investments in New Hampshire’s highways, roads and bridges while strengthening cybersecurity and coastal resiliency programs. Meanwhile, just yesterday Governor Sununu bashed this bipartisan deal and the jobs these much-needed investments in infrastructure will create. While Senator Shaheen and Senator Hassan are delivering for Granite Staters, Chris Sununu would oppose a bipartisan deal that will create jobs and grow New Hampshire’s economy.”

In Michigan:

Michigan Democratic Party: “Today, on President Biden’s 203rd day in office the Senate Democratic caucus passed historic infrastructure legislation. Infrastructure has bedeviled previous administrations – despite near-weekly promises – and some of the loudest voices in the Republican party campaigned against this agreement, but President Biden, along with Senators Peters and Stabenow delivered where others had failed.”

In Indiana:

Indiana Democratic Party: “When Joe Biden was sworn in as President, he promised Americans and Hoosiers that he would tell it straight and work across the aisle to form bipartisan coalitions to solve some of the most pressing problems facing our country. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act accomplishes this very goal as it yet again demonstrates that when good-faith partners come to the table, investments on issues like broadband internet, roads and bridges, and public transit can be delivered to the voters when partisanship takes a back seat. People have yearned for teamwork from our state and federal governments in recent years. Unfortunately, U.S. Senator Todd Young got cold feet today when it mattered most and, instead, chose to support extreme partisanship over helping all Hoosier families build a better future.”

In Kansas:

Kansas Democratic Party: “Thanks to President Joe Biden and Democratic Senators nationwide, and no thanks to Kansas Republicans Jerry Moran and Roger Marshall, the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed the Senate with strong support. The policies agreed upon will help grow our economy, create millions of good-paying jobs, rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, and expand broadband for millions of rural Americans. As Democrats get to work for the American people, Kansas Republicans continue to fumble any opportunity to bring meaningful change for our country all in the hopes of appeasing former President Donald Trump and his extremist supporters. Kansas deserves better than Jerry Moran and Roger Marshall.”

In South Carolina:

South Carolina Democratic Party: “Today Tim Scott told the people of South Carolina that our C- infrastructure grade is good enough. Over 7,292 miles of highway and 1,702 bridges are in poor condition across the state. South Carolinians deserve a senator who is willing to work across the aisle to get legislation passed for the good of our state,” said SCDP Chair Trav Robertson, Jr. “Instead of fighting for our state, he is too busy laying the groundwork for his 2024 presidential campaign and courting mega-donors. If Tim Scott can’t vote for a bipartisan bill that will improve the lives of all of his constituents, then what CAN he vote for?”

In Nebraska:

Nebraska Democratic Party: “The bi-partisan bill, championed by President Joe Biden, will bring good-paying union jobs and infrastructure improvements to Nebraska and the nation,” Kleeb said. “And yet again, we watched as Sen. Ben Sasse sat on his hands and opposed the bill. We will remind Sasse of his ‘no’ vote when he tries to take credit for the more than $2.5 billion headed to our state upon final passage of the package. We are thankful for those 19 GOP senators who had the guts to do what was right for the people.”
