Wicker on ABC’s ‘This Week’: Biden’s infrastructure proposal “a massive social welfare spending program”

By: Frank Corder - April 12, 2021

Mississippi U.S. Senator Roger Wicker joined ABC’s Sunday morning show ‘This Week” with host George Stephanopoulos to discuss President Joe Biden’s proposed infrastructure package.

“I’m meeting with the President tomorrow,” Wicker said, adding that he is willing to negotiate with the President but asked, “Where is that centrist candidate they thought they were voting for back in November of last year?”

Wicker called Biden’s proposal “a massive social welfare spending program combined with a massive tax increase on small business job creators.”

“I can’t think of a worse thing to do,” Wicker said.

Wicker said 70% of the $2.3 trillion proposal cannot by any stretch of the imagination be called infrastructure.
