The Democratic-led House of Representatives voted 233-188 to pass a $1.5-trillion infrastructure bill, the “Moving Forward Act,” sending it to the Republican majority Senate that is unlikely to pass it. Republican Senator Mitch McConnell said, “This so-called infrastructure bill would siphon billions in funding from actual infrastructure to funnel into climate-change policies.” He said that the Democrats’ proposals were only drawn up to show solidarity to the radical left.

Neither party has figured out how to pay for any of it. -GEG

The Democratic-led House of Representatives approved a massive infrastructure bill Wednesday, sending it to the Senate before lawmakers headed home for the July 4 holiday.

The Senate is unlikely to take it up and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said it will join other House proposals he said have been passed with an eye more on the November elections than on getting bills enacted into law.

The vote in the House was 233-188.

“This so-called infrastructure bill would siphon billions in funding from actual infrastructure to funnel into climate change policies,” McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said on the Senate floor Wednesday morning.

“So naturally, this nonsense is not going anywhere in the Senate. It will just join the list of absurd House proposals that were only drawn up to show fealty to the radical left,” he said.

Democrats see their $1.5 trillion-plus effort as the comprehensive solution to a variety of ills. The bill, named the “Moving Forward Act,” includes a multi-year reauthorization of the government’s surface transportation programs to replace the current law that expires Sept. 30. But it also includes $130 billion for schools, $100 billion for rural broadband, and $100 billion for affordable housing.
