It’s Been a Week Since The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill Was Signed Into Law — Why Won’t Tom Barrett Say if He Supports It?

Michiganders got a historic win last week thanks to House Democrats; Tom Barrett is silent on critical infrastructure investments for mid-Michigan

It’s been a week since the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal was signed into law and since Tom Barrett announced his misguided campaign for Congress. Why won’t Barrett say whether he supports the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which will deliver historic economic investments and job creation for Michigan?

This infrastructure deal marks the largest and most meaningful action on our nation’s infrastructure and competitiveness in nearly a century. Michiganders are set to benefit from the bill which will fix our crumbling roads and bridges, ease inflation, create millions of good-paying jobs, replace outdated lead pipes to ensure cleaner drinking water, and expand access to high-speed broadband throughout the Great Lakes State.

But instead of acknowledging the economic growth headed towards Michiganders, Barrett has refused to say if he’d rather support bipartisan investments or double down on his extreme partisan record.

“In his first week in the race, Tom Barrett is already proving he’s a typical politician Michiganders can’t trust to look out for them,” said DCCC spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “Instead of saying whether he supports the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, which will make key investments to fix Michigan’s roads and bridges, create good-paying jobs, and grow small businesses, Tom Barrett has been silent. Mid-Michigan deserves an independent-minded voice in Congress who will work with anyone to get results, but already it’s clear Barrett cares more about toeing his party line than delivering for Michigan.
