TOPLINE: 6 in 10 GOP voters support Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework 

Two weeks ago, President Joe Biden delivered on his campaign promise to find common ground to get things done for the American people by endorsing the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework. This package — the largest long-term investment in our infrastructure in nearly a century — will create a generation of good-paying jobs, tackle the climate crisis, grow the economy sustainably, improve living standards across the country, and position the United States to win the 21st century.

After decades of chronic underinvestment and insufficient upkeep, Arizona’s C-grade infrastructure is crumbling, and constituents are paying the consequences. On average, each Arizona driver pays $614 per year in costs due to driving on roads in need of repair. 

Although Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell seems intent on playing partisan games with a deeply popular plan, the majority of Americans support the Biden-led effort to work with colleagues on both sides of the aisle for the sake of progress. Democratic and Republican voters alike agree with President Biden: A Yahoo! News poll from last week found that 6 in 10 Republican voters support the bipartisan, $1.2 trillion infrastructure deal.

BOTTOM LINE: Attempting to block the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework is bad policy and bad politics for Arizona Republicans — and that’s why Reps. Biggs, Gosar, Lesko, and Schweikert’s constituents deserve to know where they stand.
