Democrats voted FOR the money….
Republicans by and large did NOT…..
House Republicans did NOT vote for the Inbfrastucture Bill on the first-go-round…
(There are reports they went home afterwards a said they actually where FOR the bill?)
More than 15 GOP Senator’s have and WILL….
Last time the Democrats had control of the Congress and White House they passed the current healthcare system into effect and some stimulus money also and did nothing after wards…(Biden was the Vice President)
They lost their shirts a year later in the 2010 Midterms….
They have a President that has opened the Treasury …
Democratic Governors and other party lawmakers are attaching themselves to Joe Biden….
That in hope that this time?
The Democratic President CAN have some political coattails in the ballot box….
The Covid recovery package that Biden and congressional Democrats enacted in March has pumped spending into state economies throughout 2021, pouring money into everything from Michigan’s community housing fund and rural broadband expansion in Wisconsin to a Nevada vaccine “raffle.” Democrats are quick to point out where that money came from: the American Rescue Plan.
The Democratic governors aren’t just trying to tie themselves to a new president who is (so far) retaining most of his early popularity. They are haunted by the beginning of the last Democratic presidential administration, when Barack Obama shepherded through a nearly $790 billion economic stimulus package — and then spent little time selling it.
