Attention democrats, if you want $4 billion for Baltimore bridge, then shut the freaking border.

Sharing is Caring!

Rep. Adrian Smith became the latest House Republican to entertain federally funding the rebuilding of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge, but he was not yet willing to commit to the idea.

“I’m willing to take a look at that but there should also be some resources privately — that should be an option as well,” the veteran Nebraska Republican said following a brief pro forma session Tuesday in Washington. “Let’s not just jump to the conclusion of that it has to be a federal answer.”

Smith is just the latest Republican to express hesitation or outright resistance toward using federal dollars to rebuild the bridge and reopen the Port of Baltimore. Maryland officials argue reopening the port, one of the nation’s busiest, and bridge will stave off rippling economic consequences throughout the country — especially on the East Coast.
