Sen. Cruz, Colleagues: Infrastructure Bill Would ‘Throw Fuel on the Fire That is the Raging Inflation Crisis and Labor Shortage’

July 28, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) today issued a joint statement on the bipartisan infrastructure framework.

"Congress can't keep spending trillions of dollars we don't have. The infrastructure package announced today continues the trend in Congress of insane deficit spending. Let's not forget, this is just the first step in the Democrats' plan to pass their $5.5 trillion tax and spend liberal wish list. Our nation is facing a nearly $30 TRILLION federal debt crisis. There are real infrastructure needs across the country. But, with growing inflation and many families struggling to financially recover from the events of the last year, it is not wise to throw fuel on the fire that is the raging inflation crisis and labor shortage we are seeing across America. Needless to say, we will not support this legislation."
