The Republicans had all the power in the world to stop Democrats from wasting trillions — yes, TRILLIONS with a ‘T’ — of taxpayer dollars.
Unfortunately, thanks to 13 RINO Republicans, they just caved.
Actually, calling them RINOs is unfair to the regular RINOs…..
These are traitors!
Take a look:
House approves infrastructure bill, 228-206. House aligns with Senate. Now goes to Biden for signature

Republicans who hand over their voting card to Nancy Pelosi to pass Biden’s Communist takeover of America will feel the anger of the GOP voter.

Goodness gracious — 13 Republican yes votes.

Want to know what makes this even worse?
The “Squad” actually voted no.
When you’re farther left than The Squad, you might not be a Republican!

Oh, Republicans voted to bail out Pelosi? While the squad voted no? How typical.

That didn’t take long for the GOP to squander their Virginia victory.

Republicans: The infrastructure bill is “socialism.”
Also Republicans: The squad are socialists.
The squad voted against the infrastructure bill while 13 republicans voted for it.
Republican’s brains explode.

The Washington Times had more details:
A cadre of moderate House Republicans saved President Biden’s $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal from defeat on Friday after far-left Democrats rebelled against the legislation.
13 House Republicans, including never-Trump acolytes like Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, joined with 215 Democrats to narrowly pass the bill. Given the narrow margin that Democrats control the House, Mr. Biden could only afford three defections.
Joining Mr. Kinzinger in backing the bill were GOP Reps. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio and Fred Upton of Michigan, who are known for their criticism of former President Donald Trump. Mr. Gonzalez, who voted to impeach Mr. Trump earlier this year, is not seeking reelection.
Among the GOP defectors were also several centrist-leaning lawmakers representing marginal districts: Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Don Bacon of Nebraska, John Katko of New York and Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey. This included several blue-state Republicans like Reps. Chris Smith of New Jersey and Nicole Malliatokis, Tom Reed and Andrew Garbarino of New York.
