Washington, D.C. – Club for Growth opposes President Biden’s so-called “infrastructure” plan, which has little to do with improving America’s infrastructure and more to do with advancing far-left liberal priorities like the Green New Deal. In fact, less than 6% of the $2.3 trillion plan is dedicated to fixing bridges and roads ($125 billion).
The misguided plan would lead to new regulations and massive tax hikes, including raising the corporate tax rate from 21% to 28%, crushing American businesses and jobs.
Among many liberal wish-list items, the plan also includes $620 billion in green energy subsidies and union payouts, $80 billion for Amtrak, $174 billion for electric vehicles, $100 billion for modernizing public schools, yet no money to help advance parental choice in education.
It even calls for the passage of the anti-worker PRO Act, which would ban Right to Work laws nationwide.
“Biden’s so-called infrastructure bill is a liberal wish-list that includes billions of dollars in special-interest giveaways and massive new tax hikes that will crush our economic recovery,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “Biden wrongly assumes that the government, instead of free markets, drives economic growth, when history shows quite the opposite.”
