|As President Biden might say, his Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal is a BFD. Amongst the unlikely supporters singing the bill’s praises? Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who called it a “godsend.” But that’s not all. A new Monmouth University poll shows Americans support the deal by a near 2-to-1 margin. President Biden’s infrastructure investment is a big deal for American workers and families.
Even Mitch McConnell, who said his main focus was on blocking President Biden’s agenda, agrees that the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal is a “godsend” for states like Kentucky and across the country.
