Wednesday, President Biden began selling his proposal to "Rebuild Infrastructure and Reshape the Economy."

Sen. Bill Hagerty visits East TN on Tuesday to praise Denso, "applauding its growth, despite the pandemic." He also shared his concern for rural hospitals, "I’m particularly concerned about our rural hospitals."

What about the pandemic Sen. Hagerty? Are you doing anything to help the country and people to survive? He voted against the recent stimulus bill, as did Rep. Burchett.

Rep. Tim Burchett announced his economic policy initiative on Wednesday. "I know we can find bipartisan ways to prioritize solutions that work..."

Hah, Burchett and bipartisan shouldn't be in the same sentence.

On Thursday, April 1, Burchett announced “President Biden is caving to the far-left with his ‘infrastructure plan.’ The reality is only 5% of this proposal goes towards repairing our roads; the rest is about progressive priorities like the Green New Deal..."

Maybe Burchett doesn't understand infrastructure is much more than just roads. Or maybe it's an April Fools joke.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn agrees

Sen. Marsha Blackburn agrees with Burchett. In her recent emailed newsletter:

Not even six percent of President Joe Biden's massive $2 trillion “infrastructure” bill will be used to build roads and bridges.

Part of the Republican agenda. They really know how to get the message out across the board.

She also mentions:
Business is booming here in Tennessee, thanks to our state’s low taxes and regulations!

It just amazes me how they are so proud to have low regulations. I mean low taxes is one thing not so good, but low regulations?
