Two of President Joe Biden’s flagship laws are pumping billions of dollars of taxpayer cash into states that will likely decide the winner of November’s presidential election, with much more money still up for grabs.

The 2021 bipartisan infrastructure package and the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), Biden’s massive climate bill, have routed more than $60 billion combined to Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Nevada, Arizona and Georgia, according to White House data. These states are widely considered to be the seven key swing states that will dictate whether Biden will secure a second term or if former President Donald Trump will return to the White House.

According to the White House, Biden is the first sitting president to join a picket line. (Photo by JIM WATSON/AFP via Getty Images)

The funds that have been distributed from the two bills to date amount to approximately half of the total amount of money that the two bills have to offer, according to Axios. (RELATED: Biden’s ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ Did Nothing To Bring Down Inflation, Economists Agree)

So far, Michigan has seen $10.8 billion for infrastructure and green energy projects, while North Carolina has received $9.8 billion and Georgia has so far taken home a massive $10.5 billion, according to White House data. The administration has given Pennsylvania a whopping $16.2 billion for such projects, $6.8 billion to Wisconsin, $3.7 billion to Nevada and $8.6 billion to Arizona.

While taxpayer cash flows into these states to subsidize infrastructure and green energy projects, Biden administration officials have recently traveled to promote the administration’s massive spending as the election cycle heats up. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm ventured to her home state of Michigan last week to promote a $1.5 billion loan to a nuclear plant that could close again in a few years and a $13 million handout to Kraft-Heinz before making a Thursday appearance in Georgia to talk about green energy projects, according to Axios.

Labor Secretary Julie Su also made a trip to Michigan to tout the Biden administration’s green jobs initiatives alongside United Auto Workers President Shawn Fain. Vice President Kamala Harris was in North Carolina on Thursday to celebrate the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) announcement that it is doling out billions of IRA dollars to green groups that are laden with Democratic establishment insiders.

The White House did not respond immediately to a request for comment.
