GOP Sen. Kennedy Says If You Look Up ‘Stupid Stuff’ In The Dictionary, You’ll See a Picture Of Infrastructure Bill

Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) went on Fox News on Monday night to blast the so-called bipartisan effort to pass the infrastructure bill.

Kennedy held nothing back as he ripped this bill in an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham.

Kennedy Sounds Off

“Well, I can just share with you my perspective, Laura,” Kennedy said. “Early on, I was a likely yes, on this bill. I mean, who’s not for infrastructure? I’m for children and prosperity too. But then I got a copy of the bill. And I realized pretty quickly that if you look up ‘stupid stuff’ in the dictionary, there’s a picture of this bill.”

Kennedy went on to highlight why exactly this bill is so bad in his mind.

“They told us it was a real infrastructure bill,” he added. “It’s not. Only 23% of the bill is real infrastructure. The rest is Green New Deal and welfare. They told us the bill was paid for. It isn’t. We’re going to have to borrow maybe up to $400 billion to pay for it.”

Kennedy Doubles Down

“They told us there was no – there were no tax increases,” Kennedy continued. “There are. My state’s going to have to pay $1.3 billion, in new taxes, on our petrochemical industry.”

“They told us, as you pointed out, that the Democrats were really wary of this bill, and then it would, if we pass this bill, it would make it harder for them to pass their $5 trillion tax and spending binge reconciliation bill,” he stated.

“Well, if that’s true, how come every Democrat voted for this infrastructure bill?” Kennedy concluded. “And finally, they told us that it’s not going to add to inflation. But it will.”

After a false start last month, the $1 trillion bill has cleared every test vote with no fewer than 66 votes, according to The New York Post. Kennedy is baffled as to how this actually happened.

“I don’t know why it passed with 60-plus votes,” Kennedy said last night. “I don’t know, day drinking, maybe?”
