Says they're both eager... but doesn't mention Congress calling for infrastructure on the campaign trail, even though they do it all the time and Congress is actually in charge of the purse strings...Sounds more like it's blaming congress. Trump seems all for it.
We should have locked in some projects when rates where at zero, and unemployment was high. But no....not much got done, with all the party fighting. What's been surprising to me is that more hasn't gotten started this time around. Just more of the same...talk without action.Haven't they already compared to the near zero rates in the last administration?
The vast majority of the money the US gives to other countries is military aid, aka handouts to our defense industry. Well, to be fair it's in the interest of our big corps to have friendly countries out there even if they are beating down their own citizens, so I guess that's in our interest....rather give the money to other countries than spend it on it's own citizens.
Actually Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell's fault.
Trouble is at the end of the day that $1trillion turns out to be mostly private funding, as in turning highways over to privatization and making them toll roads.It's at the end of the article...
Two months ago, during the State of the Union speech, President Trump noted the United States’ crumbling infrastructure.
“Both parties should be able to unite for a great rebuilding of America’s crumbling infrastructure,” Trump told Congress at the time. “I know that Congress is eager to pass an infrastructure bill, and I am eager to work with you on legislation to deliver new and important infrastructure investment.”
“This is not an option. This is a necessity,” the president added.
During his 2016 campaign, Trump called for $1 trillion over a decade on infrastructure issues across the United States.
