Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) took part in a Washington Post virtual interview on his priorities for the 117th Congress and his decision to not seek reelection. The senator criticized President Biden’s infrastructure proposal, saying its scope was beyond traditional infrastructure legislation and its was price too high, but he said he was open to smaller, more targeted measures. He was also asked about the recent mass shooting in Indianapolis and what legislative solutions he might consider. Senator Blunt said he needed to know more facts, but that most of the proposals that had been introduced would not solve the root causes, which he said were more related to mental health. He also said he opposed efforts to expand the size of the Supreme Court, which the Biden administration recently established a commission to evaluate. close
