U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is continuing her agenda of actively attacking everything Democrats do, to the point she is becoming like a more experienced Marjorie Taylor Greene or Lauren Boebert.
On Wednesday Blackburn posted a Twitter thread filled with graphics she appeared to see as attacking President Joe Biden's $2 trillion infrastructure bill. As the far-right Tennessee conservative may learn, the legislation is extraordinarily popular with the American people – Democratic and Republican voters alike.
Blackburn is among the most extreme GOP Senators, with just four (Ernst, Cruz, Cotton, and Inhofe) being even more far-right than she is. She is also rated below average in leadership, according to GovTrack, a non-partisan website that tracks Congress.
Here's Blackburn's "attack":
Biden's 'infrastructure' proposal is the latest attempt to push through a liberal agenda.

The DNC liked it so much they "stole" it (her logo is still at the top):

It didn't go well for her. Take a look:
You're just further proof how utterly beyond salvaging today's GOP is. Each of you Republican Senators is just a soulless husk void of a heart, morals, or any ideas of value-- mere grifters and racists willing to say and do anything for money, the future be damned. What a legacy.

Hey, remember how Texas' infrastructure went down for a week or more because the electric grid wasn't equipped for climate change? Yeah. This is about infrastructure, lady.

Did the Biden administration pay Marsha for this tweet? https://t.co/0e2tS109xT

Exactly. As Pete Buttigieg told Fox "News" commentators, the fact that Texans were having to gather up snow in their bathtubs to melt for water to be able to flush their toilets SHOULD NEVER BE HAPPENING IN THE U.S. Infrastructure is now QUITE POPULAR.

It would certainly be an improvement over a conservative agenda -- cut taxes, deplete the country, no investments in anything, no long term maintenance, just use everything up. Hope he is successful!

I work in agriculture and climate change is the biggest issue that my business faces. I can't fund a legitimate study on my own. Thanks for showing how you don't care about my needs as a small business owner.

You don't see the connection between climate change and infrastructure? Rising sea levels won't have any impact on roads and distribution in coastal areas? 🤦🏻♀️

🚨🚨 So proud to announce that @MarshaBlackburn has joined the DNC creative team and is banging out graphics touting the Biden-Harris jobs plan that will **also** help us care for our rapidly growing elderly population. Thanks, Marsha! https://t.co/M0fEfl4aTW
