Gallagher (R-Fox Valley) is playing Tough Guy on the border and scoring a bunch of radio-time in the Milwaukee (!!!) market for a reason. He wants to run for higher office and has to cover the fact that:
He's a squish.
As House progressives threaten to withhold dozens of votes to pass a bipartisan $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill if it comes up for a vote in the coming weeks, several Republican members of a bipartisan group that backed the bill say they have no plans to rescue it.
Two members of the Problem Solvers Caucus -- Reps. Mike Gallagher (R-Wisc.) and Mike Bost (R-Ill.) -- told Forbes they won't vote for the bill, while another, Rep. Peter Meijer (R-Mich.), said he has a "tremendous amount of discomfort" with it. --Ace quoting Forbes
Umnnnhhhhh.....yah. Now that the Biden* train has derailed resoundingly, completely, and totally, leaving the odor of rotting flesh and flatulence all over The Swamp, Gallagher suddenly acts like a conservative?
Color me UN-impressed.
