South Carolina Senator Tim Scott voted against the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill Tuesday, calling it “reckless spending.”

In a statement, Scott called for “targeted investment” and not the “Democrats’ unrelated pet projects.”

“Rather than taking a common sense approach to investing in infrastructure, this bill has been rushed through so Democrats can spend trillions more dollars we don’t have on liberal policies we don’t need — all amid record inflation,” Scott said in the statement. “American families cannot afford to foot the bill for this ‘spend now, tax later’ plan, which is why I voted no.”
