Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., appeared on ABC’s “This Week.”
President Joe Biden’s spending is “like someone with a new credit card,” Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”
“And these are things that we don’t necessarily need — we certainly can’t afford — but they’re going to delight the liberal left of the party,” Barrasso told “This Week” co-anchor Martha Raddatz.
“Ultimately, someone’s going to have to pay for this. It’s almost creating an addiction to spending,” he added.
Barrasso two weeks ago called Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure package a “slush fund for liberal spending,” pointing to proposals which meet broader definitions of infrastructure, like electric vehicle development.
Republicans, last month, unveiled a $568 billion infrastructure plan that focuses exclusively on “core” infrastructure items like roads and bridges, broadband, airports, waterways, rails, ports and public transit. It excludes other big-ticket items in Biden’s proposal, including explicit funding for electric vehicles, housing and home care.
