Republican lawmakers are responding to President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure bill with a litany of misleading and even false statements.

The GOP’s longstanding strategy of attaching the socialism label to any Democratic policy proposal is not new. It’s been the go-to move for the party ever since the rise of the Tea Party in the 2010 midterms, and became integral to former President Donald Trump’s losing campaign in 2020.

However, many of the recent socialism critiques of the Biden plan are problematic, particularly in how Republicans have been quibbling over the definition of infrastructure.
