The GOP has no one but itself to blame for losing on this issue.
Instead of using budget reconciliation to pass a popular infrastructure bill, they used budget reconciliation to try to pass an unpopular health care bill and the equally toxic corporate tax cut in 2017.
“Congressional Republicans have argued that the White House’s definition of infrastructure is too broad. But when asked if legislation should solely address traditional infrastructure such as bridges and roads — which is the GOP’s position — less than a quarter of Americans (22 percent) agree. More than twice that number (49 percent) side with the Biden administration and say the next big bill from Congress should also tackle other types of infrastructure such as energy, water, housing, health care, manufacturing and communications systems. …
A full 56 percent of Americans support that funding stream — twice the number (28 percent) who voice opposition. Likewise, 55 percent of Americans favor a global minimum tax rate designed to help prevent multinational corporations from evading U.S. taxes by shifting profits to other countries; even more (65 percent) want to close loopholes that allow corporations to avoid U.S. taxes by putting their money in offshore banks; and a majority (51 percent) support raising the U.S. corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent to pay for infrastructure investments. Opposition to these Biden administration initiatives is low, ranging from 15 percent (for closing loopholes) to 30 percent (for raising the corporate tax rate). …”
We’re not the problem here.
Do you see the 40% of Republican voters who stand out from the rest here? That’s the Populist Right. The GOP is split about 60/40 on economics. This is why I continue to stress that the resorting of the electorate will tip the scales on economics in another election cycle or two.
The Republican Party is united about 85/15 on cultural issues. The divide is around 60/40 on economic issues because working class voters are coming into the party and the college-educated suburbanites are leaving.
