According to disturbing new reports, a critical mass of Republicans in the Senate are preparing to give in and throw their support behind President Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill.

As The Hill reports:

Senate Republicans are about to hand President Biden a huge political victory by voting for a historic $1 trillion infrastructure package that the president can then tout as fulfilling a campaign pledge to restore bipartisanship in Washington.

GOP senators and aides predict as many as 20 Republicans — twice the number needed to avoid a filibuster — could vote for the legislation, which would provide the most funding in decades for roads, airports, railroads, drinking water and other priorities.

“I think everybody pretty much knows what they’re going to do. I think some people are trying to get to yes,” said a Republican senator who helped craft the legislation that was unveiled on Sunday. “So my prediction is 20.”

The legislation needs 60 votes to overcome a filibuster and make it to final passage, meaning no more than 10 Republicans are needed.

If Republicans end up caving to Biden on the bill they will be giving up a historic opportunity to stop the further growth of big government while handing Democrats a massive policy victory.

I have been saying that exact same thing since they stabbed Trump in the back and then try to use him to raise money and rinos will never receive my support again. Trump has to let everyone know how to see that the money gets to him and not one rino with one thin dime.

If it is used for infrastructure that would be one thing BUT they need to get all the pork out of the bill. I know the Democrats won’t do that, probably they will add more pork.
