Meet The Republicans Who Say Our Highway System is Racist
So it turns out that President Biden’s massive infrastructure bill has very little to do with infrastructure.
The $1 trillion-plus bipartisan package bill would among other things fix “racism physically built into some of our highways.”
The Republican Study Committee pointed out that “woke” Republicans were responsible for giving the president his massive victory.
Breitbart reports the bipartisan infrastructure would also advance leftist priorities:
- Defines “gender identity” as a protected class.
- Doles out “digital equity” grants partly based on racial or ethnic minority status.
- State-mandated carbon reduction program
- Contains funding for “zero-emission vehicles”
- Addresses “over-the-road bus tolling equity”
- Contains the word “equity” 64 times
- Provides roughly $2.5 billion to help the U.S. government expand the border processing stations used by migrants from poor Central American nations and other regions around the world.
- Contains a $10 million grant to create a Vehicle Miles Travelled Tax (VMT) Pilot program, which many conservatives argue could lead to a permanent VMT tax.
- A $1 million per state grant to encourage children to walk to school.
Below, we listed the names of the Republicans who supported President Biden. All of them should be primaried.
