Fox News host Tucker Carlson excoriated the Republican senators who signaled their support for the Democrats’ massive $1 trillion “infrastructure” spending bill.
The “infrastructure” bill, which 17 Republican senators voted to move forward this week, aims, among other things, to criminalize “science denial” and make “gender identity” federal law.
“It’s 2,700 pages long. It would cost more than a trillion dollars. It will not pay for itself, despite what they told you,” Carlson said Friday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“And much of it has nothing whatsoever to do with infrastructure. Meaning fixing our crumbling roads and bridges and airports and train stations and all the rest that embarrasses America.”

“Instead, this bill will make science denial official, it will enshrine gender identity in federal law,” Carlson continued. “It will allow the government to track your driving. Why? So they can charge you a fee for every mile you go. This in addition to the gas tax.”
Carlson then pointed out a dystopian provision in the bill that will require Big Brother to monitor you in your car.
“And scariest of all, this bill requires all new vehicles in the United States to come with monitoring technology, such as eye scanners or breathalyzers, and that means that going forward, you will need the express permission of your federal overlords before you start your car in the morning. Because it’s their car now,” he said.
“As of tonight, 20 Republican senators appear to support this lunacy. The final vote is this weekend. So if you have views about this, you might want to let them know right away. They assume you’re not paying attention so they can do whatever they want to you, and in this case they are.”
Carlson then listed off the 17 Republican senators who have sided with the radical left:
- Roy Blunt (Mo.)
- Richard Burr (N.C.)
- Shelly Moor Capito (W.V.)
- Bill Cassidy (La.)
- Susan Collins (Maine)
- Kevin Cramer (N.D.)
- Mike Crapo (Idaho)
- Lindsey Graham (S.C.) — “of course,” Tucker noted.
- Chuck Grassley (Iowa)
- John Hoeven (N.D.)
- Mitch McConnell (Ky.)
- Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
- Rob Portman (Ohio)
- Jim Risch (Idaho)
- Mitt Romney (Utah)
- Tom Tillis (N.C.)
- Todd Young (Ind.)
“Now, a few of these people plan to retire soon, thank Heaven. But most of them intend to get reelected at some point. And it might be good if voters made that impossible,” Carlson concluded.
If you live in any of these states, take Carlson’s advice and let your senator know you don’t support the so-called “infrastructure” bill that’s stuffed to the brim with insane far-left provisions.
