Congress is expected to take action on President Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan any day now, but Republicans are hesitant to endorse the expensive plan, which is filled with Democrat agenda goals and progressive talking points.

Biden originally said last week he would not sign the infrastructure plan that garnered GOP support unless the legislative body also passed a reconciliation bill littered with leftist agenda items. When Republicans promised to jeopardize Biden’s plan by pulling out of the “bipartisan” part of the deal in response, Biden walked back his statement and claimed that potentially vetoing any legislation that didn’t include sneaky provisions for his families plan “was certainly not my intent.”

“The bottom line is this: I gave my word to support the Infrastructure Plan, and that’s what I intend to do. I intend to pursue the passage of that plan, which Democrats and Republicans agreed to on Thursday, with vigor,” the president said in a statement.

The House transportation bill as it stands now heavily relies on deficit spending, which threatens to fuel the already concerning inflation occurring under the Democrat administration. Consumer prices such as gas and food continue to climb at their fastest annual rate since 2008 as inflation skyrockets to the highest it’s been in over a decade, but the Democrats want to move forward with the expensive plan.

2. It Overdrafts America’s Bank Account

By reauthorizing $547.9 billion worth of spending, the bill will shower funds on transportation programs that were previously allocated more than $305 billion from the Obama administration to be used through 2020 — and just months after the Democrats passed Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 spending bill.

Approximately $148 billion of this spending will
