Every Single Senate Republican Voted against Infrastructure Plan Which Would Have Created Jobs

Mitch McConnell, Roy Blunt

May 20, 2013
On Thursday Senate Republicans (again) voted against jobs, blocking a $60 billion measure for building and repairing infrastructure like roads and rail lines.

Supporters said the measure would have created tens of thousands of construction jobs and lifted the still-struggling economy. But Republicans unanimously opposed it for its tax surcharge on the wealthy and spending totals they said were too high. And this is from the party that feigns to support the middle class.

  The 51-49 vote fell well short of the 60 votes.

The AP reports, “Every Republican opposed the president, as did Democrat Ben Nelson of Nebraska and former Democrat Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., who still aligns with the party.”
Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell said, “The truth is, Democrats are more interested in building a campaign message than in rebuilding roads and bridges. And frankly, the American people deserve a lot better than that.”

Obama slammed Republicans in an unusually tough statement issued by the White House.
“The American people deserve to know why their Republican representatives in Washington refuse to put some of the workers hit hardest by the economic downturn back on the job rebuilding America,” Obama said. “It’s time for Republicans in Congress to put country ahead of party and listen to the people they were elected to serve. It’s time for them to do their job and focus on Americans’ jobs.”
