Aug 25, 2021 by AFP

WEST LAFAYETTE, IN – Americans for Prosperity-Indiana (AFP-IN) announced it is hosting a rally against the Biden-Sanders $4.7 trillion “infrastructure” proposals on Friday. U.S. Senator Mike Braun will attend the rally and speak with Hoosiers on why these proposals are bad for families, will hurt the economy, and make it harder to achieve the American dream.

This week, the House of Representatives passed a procedural vote on Senator Sanders’ $3.5 trillion “human infrastructure” proposal that represents the biggest spending spree in American history paid for by tax increases, a government takeover of health care, and top-down, command-and-control mandates from Washington.

WHO: AFP-Indiana, Senator Mike Braun

WHEN: Friday, August 27th
3:00PM EST

WHERE: Four Points by Sheraton
1600 Cumberland Avenue
West Lafayette, IN 47906

In May, Americans for Prosperity launched a campaign, “End Washington Waste: Stop the Spending Spree,” to oppose the $4+ trillion combined “infrastructure” package. The campaign has so far produced more than 1.5 million letters to elected officials. The breadth of this campaign should signal to lawmakers that Americans want a better path forward. Instead, AFP has advocated an alternative approach focused on empowers individuals, families, and businesses and rebuilds physical infrastructure by:

  • Preserving federal dollars for targeted construction projects of a national priority.
  • Ending the practice of spending gas tax revenues on non-highway projects.
  • Unleashing private investment in infrastructure assets.
  • Returning power and responsibility to the states wherever possible.
  • Overhauling the regulatory and permitting system to modernize infrastructure reviews and reduce project costs.
  • Eliminating costly and unfair labor restrictions.
