GOP Donors Reportedly Furious Over RINOs Voted Biden ‘Infrastructure’ Bill

GOP Donors Reportedly Furious Over RINOs Voted Biden ‘Infrastructure’ Bill


Florida Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, is getting a lot of heat these days from Republican donors who aren’t happy campers.

A new report from Axios says Scott is hearing from the GOP donor base reportedly “furious” at Republican defectors who voted for Biden’s massive “infrastructure bill.”

Of course voters are just as outraged, but when the people talk about money, the politicians really listen.

If the donors aren’t happy…

Axios reports that donors are complaining to Scott about the GOP’s “folly” in helping Democrats and President Joe Biden push through trillion-dollar legislation.

sen. Scott relayed the GOP donor’s anger to his fellow senators at a closed-door meeting earlier this week. It was reported to have caused some awkward moments as several of those who voted for the bill were present.

Prior to the meeting, several Republicans from both the House and Senate had the nerve to attend the bill signing ceremony. As expected, those in attendance were the usual GOP suspects, including Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Susan Collins (R-ME) and Mitt Romney (R-UT).

Donors may need to prepare to be a little angrier

It can get a little risky to be a GOP donor in 2022 and 2024. While Donald Trump’s plans are still officially unknown, the Republican establishment seems to be trying to distance himself from a Trump run — or even one.

During a recent appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Scott was asked if the NRSC would support candidates like Murkowski, who has a primary challenger who has backed Trump. Scott replied:

“Absolutely. … We support all of our incumbents. And lucky for us, we have great candidates in our primaries. And lucky for us, we have Bernie Sanders candidates on the other side in many primaries, and so we’ll be in a great position in ’22.”

But Scott and the NRSC apparently want it both ways. During the same appearance, he said it would be “foolish” candidates not to seek the support of the former president.

If you’re a Republican donor, you may want to scratch that check for some anger management classes during the next two election cycles.
