On infrastructure, Senator Marshall said in part, “President Biden has turned down Senator Capito’s great effort, he’s turned down the Problem Solvers Caucus – the most moderate group of congressmen… I am afraid nothing is on the table. Everyone is excited about infrastructure here and my folks back home are excited about it but the real question is what are the priorities and where are we going to get the money from. Here we are just printing money, the President wants to borrow $8 trillion from our grandchildren – leading to more inflation…” You may click HERE or on the image below to watch this portion of Sen.

On the labor shortage, Senator Marshall said in part, “I was back in Kansas last week, visiting a warehouse on the Kansas Missouri border – a well-known company, they are doing great. They employ about 300 but they are 35 people short so everyone there is working extra-long hours and about the last 15 people they have employed, 14 were from Missouri. The big difference is, Missouri is going to roll back that extra $300 a week but our Kansas Governor refuses to stop that extra $300… As I talk to small businesses, everywhere I go, their number one concern – the major limiting factor on the Kansas economy – is a lack of people willing to return to work.” You may click HERE or on the image below to watch this portion of Sen.
