Sen. Lee votes against $1,200,000,000,000 bill

 Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement today after voting against H.R. 3684, the $1.2-trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, as amended:

“I am sorely disappointed that the Senate chose to pass this irresponsible and so-called ‘infrastructure’ bill. It drastically expands federal power; it increases spending without legitimate ‘pay-fors’; it exacerbates our already dangerous inflation; and it facilitates burdensome taxes and regulations that will hamper and harm our infrastructure. Ultimately, it will be the American people who will be forced to pay the exorbitant price. That is why I opposed this bill, and why I am deeply concerned with the $3,500,000,000,000 cost of the next spending plan before the Senate.”
