GOP Rep. Fitzpatrick Praises Bipartisan Compromise On Infrastructure Bill

Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., on Sunday said a bipartisan compromise on a massive infrastructure package doesn’t include any tax increases — a proposal that “nobody will be totally in love with,” but that “everybody will be okay with.”

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Fitzpatrick hailed an approach that has the support of most of the GOP caucus for the definition and scope of the bill.

“We came to $1.25 billion over eight years and then a third of the paid-fors,” he described as the goal for a plan that [Rep.] Josh [Gottheimer, D-N.J.] and I have been working with … now 21 senators, bipartisan,” he said, “We’ve addressed the paid-fors and have done it without any taxes increases. Should everything be on the table? Of course it should be. That’s part of compromise. Nobody will be totally in love with the plan but everybody will be okay with it. That’s the whole point of our caucus. That’s what our country wants us to do.”
