WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND), a member of the Senate Banking and Senate Budget committees, joined Edward Lawrence on Fox Business last night to discuss infrastructure and Democrats’ plan to raise taxes.
“There is no question one of the most bipartisan issues in Congress is transportation infrastructure. That includes of course highways and bridges, as you talked about, and it includes waterways, ports, it can include things like broadband, rail, transmission lines, pipelines. … I don’t think there’s any question we'll get a lot of bipartisan support.”
On Raising Taxes:
“The main reason we had the incredible growth in our economy we have had up until the pandemic is because we lowered the corporate tax rate to 21 percent ... If makes no sense now at a time when the economy is coming back, the foundation is built pretty strongly, to now raise taxes on those very same people. It creates an incentive for people to move their companies out of the country rather than bring more of them in.”
