Fact Checking Claims That No Republicans Voted for the Infrastructure Bill

In a tweet Sunday, President Joe Biden referred to the 2021 infrastructure bill as bipartisan.

The claim was challenged by Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-New Mexico), who said in a tweet that has since been deleted that no Republicans voted for the bill.

Heinrich is incorrect: The bill passed the Senate with a vote of 69-30, with one abstention, and the House 228-206. Thirteen House Republicans votedfor the bill, and 19 Senate Republicans did so. You can see a full list of the Republicans in the House and the Senate here and here, respectively.
