US Senators have not been provided with a copy of the infrastructure bill, as of Friday morning, even though the Senate voted to move the bill forward on Wednesday evening, July 28, 2021.

The secretive Biden “infrastructure” bill has reportedly metastasized, like a cancer, from 700 pages to 2500 pages. US Senators and the public don’t have access, but lobbyists reportedly do.

The 57 page CNN summary doesn’t tell us what’s in it. It does, however, tell us that $6 billion of dangerous nuclear pork barrel subsidies is on the Biden wish list. https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2019/04/28/nuclear-power-stations-discharge-radioactive-carbon-produce-carbon-during-entire-fuel-chain-not-carbon-free/

Lobbyist are contacting my staff w/ questions on infrastructure bill text they have already seen-Senators & general public don’t have access to it yet. This is DC typical. We hear it is 2,500 pgs—no text has been officially released. How can you vote on a bill that doesn’t exist? 11:56 AM · Jul 30, 2021

Only the devil and his minions know what sort of costly crap is hidden inside, it seems. We know from Pelosi’s bloated Covid bill to expect things like amnesty and funding for illegal migrants to be hidden inside, as well as a lot of pork barrel spending unrelated to the topic at hand. Her bloated infrastructure bill was also mostly unrelated to infrastructure.

US Senator Wicker tweeted out his statement at 7:25 PM on Wednesday, Jul 28, 2021, saying that “Senators are being asked to move forward on a bill that we have not had an opportunity to read.”

Toomey Votes Against Proceeding to Textless Infrastructure Proposal
JULY 28, 2021 Washington, D.C. – United States Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) released the following statement regarding his vote against proceeding to the infrastructure package:
 
“Once again today we were asked to proceed to legislation that does not yet exist. While a great deal of work has been done by my colleagues to reach this stage, there remains no text whatsoever. I still have many questions about the spending and how it would be paid for

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss., ranking member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, today released the following statement on the motion to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to consider bipartisan infrastructure legislation:

“I have long been a strong supporter of investing in our core infrastructure, but I am unable to support this agreement in its current form,” Wicker said. “Yet again, Senators are being asked to move forward on a bill that we have not had an opportunity to read.” https://www.commerce.senate.gov/2021/7/wicker-statement-on-bipartisan-infrastructure-deal

On Wednesday evening, PBS reported that the infrastructure bill was 700 pages and was a $550 billion bill: “The GOP senators were given a thick binder of briefing materials during a private lunch, but they asked many questions and wanted more details.” See: “Senate votes to start work on $1 trillion infrastructure bill” Politics Jul 28, 2021 7:48 PM EDT https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics/senate-votes-to-start-work-on-1-trillion-infrastructure-bill
