Rep. Mo Brooks Takes Republicans Who Voted For Infrastructure Bill To The Woodshed, Says Their Vote Was ‘Gift’ To Socialism

Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, a Republican, took his fellow GOP colleagues in both the House and the Senate who voted in favor of the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill to the woodshed, calling their vote a “gift” to socialism.

Conducting an interview on Newsmax’s “Stinchfield” show, Brooks stated, “it’s not just those 13 Republicans in the House, it’s also those 19 Republicans in the Senate, who voted the same way. These 32 gave a gift to dictatorial socialism and its march on America, and in so doing, they betrayed the very voters who sent them to Washington D.C., to represent our foundational principles that have combined to make America the greatest nation in world history.”

Last Friday, the House of Representatives voted 228-206 to pass the infrastructure legislation. Here is a list of the 13 Republicans in the House who voted for the bill:

  • Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska
  • Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania
  • Rep. Andrew Garbarino of New York
  • Rep. Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio
  • Rep. John Katko of New York
  • Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois
  • Rep. Nicole Malliotakis of New York
  • Rep. David McKinley of West Virginia
  • Rep. Tom Reed of New York
  • Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey
  • Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan
  • Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey
  • Rep. Don Young of Alaska

Brooks is absolutely right on the money.

Republicans who voted in favor of this monstrosity obviously do not have the best interest of the average, middle-class American in mind. If they truly did, they wouldn’t seek to saddle the nation with more debt that we simply cannot afford.

We expect this sort of thing from liberals, but from so-called Republicans who claim to be all about small government and less taxation, it’s betrayal.

Hopefully, voters will send this list of individuals a strong message during the next election.
