GOP Senator Jerry Moran (KS) changed his stance on Tuesday to “no” on the alleged infrastructure deal, after Republican Senator Todd Young (IN).
“GOP Senator Jerry Moran, who is coming up for reelection and initially supported the bipartisan infrastructure framework, just unveiled his opposition to the end bill and said he intends to vote against it,” a CNN journalist first reported:

Moran’s flip from the RINO Republicans backing the bill comes after Young revealed he would vote against the deal.
Senate Republicans who still want to support Biden’s infrastructure program are Republican Senators Roy Blunt (MO), Shelley Capito (WV), Richard Burr (NC), Mitch McConnell (KY), Bill Cassidy (LA), Mike Crapo (ID), Lindsey Graham (SC), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Jim Risch (ID), Mitt Romney (UT), Thom Tillis (NC), John Hoeven (ND), Susan Collins (ME), Kevin Cramer (ND), Rob Portman (OH), and Chuck Grassley (IA).
Democrat Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (NY), who wished to fast-track the process to quickly pass the bill over the weekend, failed to do this thanks to opposition from Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN), who was not willing to consent to the advancement due to the Congressional Budget Office’s terrible score of the huge 2,702-page bill.
Former President Trump praised Hagerty for putting “AMERICA FIRST,” slamming the legislation as a “gift to the Dem Party, compliments of McConnell.”
“I was not elected by Tennessee to be the most popular lawmaker in the United States Senate. I was elected to protect their interests,” Hagerty said. “I cannot in good conscience vote to support a flawed bill that puts this country another quarter of a trillion or more in debt, especially when we have not had an opportunity to look into and understand its complete economic ramifications.”
Republicans are only just now becoming aware of the liberal wish list items hidden within Democrats so-called “infrastructure” bill. One of those items being mass immigration into every state of the union. A topic that is sure to infuriate most Americans and give more energy to any possible Donald Trump campaign in 2024.
