Sen. Blunt sees ‘easy win’ if infrastructure plan scaled back
Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) said Sunday the Biden White House could score “an easy win” on infrastructure if it would just reduce its new plan to focus solely on infrastructure.
Speaking to host Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” Blunt said that of the $2 trillion plan offered last month by President Joe Biden, only about 30 percent of it was truly dedicated to what has traditionally been called infrastructure.
“I think there’s an easy win here for the White House if they would take that win, which is make this an infrastructure package, which is about 30 percent, even if you stretch the definition of infrastructure some, it’s about 30 percent of the $2.25 trillion we are talking about spending,” he said.
