Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene did not mince words Thursday during her visit to the Iowa State Fair when talking about the Biden infrastructure bill. The Georgia representative issued a warning for Republican colleagues considering supporting the plan.
“I challenged all of my Republican colleagues that they need to stay focused on America First, and also, they’d better vote no for the infrastructure bill and the budget bill,” she said. “Any Republican that votes for the infrastructure bill and the budget bill that passes the Green New Deal is someone that I will support their primary opponent.”
Greene said her SASS PAC has raised over $250,000 in the last 48 hours without her making a single call.
“We are sick and tired of the Mitch McConnell’s and we are fed up with the Paul Ryan-type leadership of the Republican Party,” she said. “It’s time to have people stand up and fight back for once in the GOP conference.”
The Iowa Standard asked Greene if that goes for Sen. Chuck Grassley, who voted in support of the bill in the Senate.
“I’m going to be focusing on House members, but there were 19 feckless, coward Republicans in the Senate that made that infrastructure bill possible that we’re actually having to deal with it in the House,” she said. “And shame on them. Shame on them helping AOC pass the Green New Deal, which is going to help China defeat America’s economy. And we have to say no.”
Greene said Republican voters and donors are “sick and tired” of the RINOs and of them “failing” the country.
