Only one member of Missouri’s delegation supported the U-S House passage of the bipartisan infrastructure package.
All six Republicans and Democratic Congresswoman Cori Bush voted “no” on the one-point-two-trillion-dollar plan.
Bush said a vote in favor would have “jeopardized our leverage to improve the livelihood of health care workers, children, caregivers, seniors, and the environment.”
Congressman Emanuel Cleaver says the legislation will bring nine-billion dollars to Missouri to upgrade roads, bridges, public transit, airports, and broadband access.
G-O-P Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer called it nothing more than ” Democrats’ Green New Deal two-point-oh and a pathway to their massive socialist spending bill.”
Republican Senator Roy Blunt voted “yes” when it passed his chamber.
