Womack Statement on "Infrastructure" Bill
Washington, November 5, 2021
Washington, DC—November 5, 2021....Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) released the below statement after voting against tonight’s “infrastructure” bill, which is part of the Democrats’ multi-trillion-dollar tax-and-spend package:
“Arkansans want a legitimate and focused infrastructure plan. We are talking about building a modernized system through strategic investments in things like roads, bridges, tunnels, and broadband. This bill is anything but that. It’s a shill for the Green New Deal and unlocks the next step in their socialist vision. Speaker Pelosi likes to say these policies are ‘for the children.’ It’s because her reckless spending will be paid for by our children and grandchildren.”
Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011. He is a member of the House Appropriations Committee.
