When you think back to the Trump presidency, do you remember how many times he said he wanted to tackle infrastructure? He said it all the time.
And Democrats (and a few RINO Republicans) blocked his efforts every time.
Now the Democrats are trying to pass a massive infrastructure bill with very little infrastructure in it.
Breitbart News reports:
Pollak: When Trump Wanted Infrastructure, Democrats — and Establishment Republicans — Blocked Him
President Donald Trump came into office and shocked Democrats with a promise to pass an infrastructure bill.
They did not know quite how to react, especially after Trump began courting the unions that would benefit from the jobs he wanted to create. Then-Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) cautiously welcomed the idea; California’s then-Gov. Jerry Brown declared: “Amen, brother!”. But quietly, Democrats maneuvered to defeat Trump’s proposals.
Democrats were terrified lest Trump be identified with infrastructure spending, something that Democrats had seen as their own turf since the New Deal era. They want Americans to connect “middle-class” jobs with federal government spending, which means electing Democrats to spend ever-greater amounts of money.
That desire ran up against the left’s regulatory zeal, especially on environmental issues, which has stymied infrastructure spending on large scales
Trump wanted to get rid of red tape in the permitting for infrastructure projects. But he also had a bold, new idea that Democrats found even more threatening: using the private sector to drive investment.
Look at the size of the Democrat bill.

It’s full of all kinds of left wing craziness.

Not a single Republican should support this bill.
