Alabama Congressman Mocked For Celebrating Infrastructure Project Funded by Bill He Voted Against

Infrastructure has long been popular among both Democrats and Republicans. Donald Trump, of course, long vowed to pass a measure to fix roads and bridges in the country.

And Joe Biden’s plan to do so was supported by 63% of Americans in an August poll. Still, only 13 Republicans chose to vote for the bill when they had the chance.

But now that projects are soon to get going in their towns, Republican Reps will be quick to take credit. Gary Palmer became one of the first to do so on Tuesday.

The Alabama Rep. wrote in a statement, “Completing the Northern Beltline will benefit the entire region and enhance economic development and employment opportunities. This is the opportunity we have been working for as a region and a state. Now is the time for us to take advantage of it and complete the work by finishing the Northern Beltline and building a better future for the Birmingham metro area and central Alabama.”

But earlier this month, Palmer wrote, “The Democrats have shown they are willing to recklessly push through a bill that costs over a trillion dollars with only about 10 percent going to roads and bridges.”

Palmer was chided by GOP colleague Adam Kinzinger. The Illinois Rep responded to the Alabama Congressman, “That’s why I voted yes on this bipartisan infrastructure bill!”
