UUP Response to Infrastructure Bills
The United Utah Party supports a balanced approach to America’s infrastructure crisis. The $3.5
trillion infrastructure bill pushed by some Congressional Democrats is problematic, given our
country’s budget deficit and ballooning national debt. Maintaining our physical infrastructure
and implementing broadband are essential for modernizing the American economy. However,
the social programs included in this bill are not something that all Americans agree that we can
afford right now.
“The key to this issue is striking a balance. We need to invest meaningfully in key infrastructure
areas, while avoiding unnecessary costs that will just make our financial challenges even worse,”
says UUP Chair Hillary Stirling. The United Utah Party supports the $1 trillion dollar
infrastructure bill that has already passed, but we do not support the $3.5 trillion dollar bill.
There is not consensus that this increase in spending is something the American people need or
can even afford right now.
