Louisiana Sen. Bill Cassidy (R) is urging more Republicans to support the bipartisan infrastructure bill.

During an interview on Friday, Cassidy said he was frustrated with House Republicans who have been split on the matter of supporting the bill. He argued supporting the bill would “take away the leverage of the progressive caucus” as Democrats are attempting to tie the infrastructure bill to the bloated reconciliation package.

“This is a great bill for all Americans, whatever your political party. It does seem like politics are trumping the needs of the American people,” said Cassidy. “So if we pass this, it’s going to be great for our country, create a lot of jobs.”

Cassidy stressed passing the infrastructure bill would help boost America’s economy by creating a lot of jobs.
