The 13 Republicans who supported President Biden’s infrastructure bill and voted to pass it late Friday are now the target of their fellow GOP members and threatened to be ousted from the party.
“RINOs [Republicans in name only] just passed this wasteful $1.2 trillion dollar ‘infrastructure’ bill,” Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert tweeted.
“Pelosi did not have the votes in her party to pass this garbage. Time to name names and hold these fake Republicans accountable.”
Florida Rep. Anthony Sabatini had even suggested that “every Republican who voted for the infrastructure bill must be eliminated from the party.”
“Republicans who hand over their voting card Nancy Pelosi to pass Biden’s Communist takeover of America will feel the anger of the GOP voter,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene added.
But despite all the criticism, Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick still called his vote in favor of Biden’s infrastructure bill a “victory for the entire country.”
“With the House passage of the historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, we are one step closer to fixing our nation’s crumbling physical infrastructure.”
