Indiana Republicans continue to be the Party of extreme partisanship, rooting against the future of Hoosier families
ICYMI: INGOP calls investments in broadband, roads and bridges, and clean water “socialism”
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Democratic Party, the organization that advocates for the future of Indiana and its families, today criticized the Indiana Republican Party for once again betting against creating a brighter future for Hoosier families. This time, INGOP Chairman Kyle Hupfer referred to the Republicans’ opposition to broadband, roads and bridges, and clean water as a “great campaign to run on” for the 2022 midterm elections. Hupfer is referring to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal (BID) and it’s transformational investments it will bring to the Hoosier State.
Here’s exactly what Kyle Hupfer told Fox59’s “INFocus” yesterday:
“If right now, it is that we’re the Party of ‘NO’ to what Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are trying to do in Washington, D.C., then I think that’s a great campaign to run on.” – INGOP Chairman Kyle Hupfer, 11.14.21
The Indiana Republican Party is literally betting against the future of this state. In fact, the entire Indiana Republican Party said “NO” to the BID, with elected officials like Todd Young, Jackie Walorski, and Larry Bucshon all referring to broadband, clean water, and better roads as “social spending” or “socialism” — despite campaigning on the very issues themselves. The INGOP’s willingness to politicize issues like clean water make it clear they value misinformation and extreme partisanship than delivering a better tomorrow for the Hoosier State.
In contrast, Indiana Democrats are visiting small towns across the state to tout how the American Rescue Plan, Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, and overall Build Back Better agenda is creating a better future for rural Hoosiers. The Democrats’ “Small Town, Indiana” tour has crisscrossed Indiana and will conclude this week with stops in Greensburg, Columbia City, and Marion. Hoosiers wanted action, and Democrats delivered for them when it mattered most.
