Republicans Want A Participation Trophy For Legislation They Tried to Block
January 20, 2022
We all know the type: They do none of the work, put their name on the project, and hope to get credit, no questions asked. That is today’s Republican Party – so devoid of an agenda that they want to claim credit for the new bridges and roads, clean water, and jobs they voted against.
A math lesson for those Republicans: 94% of House Republicans voted against President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law – 94% might have gotten them an “A” in school, but today it just makes you a hypocrite.
Here’s a quick cheat sheet for Republicans to make sure they don’t forget that it was actually Democrats who delivered for their districts:
- The Advocate: “Infrastructure money released and praised by congress people who didn’t vote for the bill”
- MSNBC: “Republicans want credit for infrastructure bill they voted against”
- HuffPost: “More Republicans Take Credit For Infrastructure Funding They Voted Against”
- Iowa Starting Line: “Hinson Takes Credit for Infrastructure Funds She Labeled as ‘Socialist,’ Voted Against”
