Donald Trump met with Nancy and Chuck today and they agreed to work on a $2 trillion infrastructure plan. This was something Trump should have done out of the gates in his first two years alongside dealing with border security and immigration but he instead decided to waste his first six months in office on trying and failing to abolish Obamacare. Infrastructure would have been an easy political win and something that had and still has bi-partisan support.
Democratic congressional leaders say President Trump has agreed to a $2 trillion infrastructure plan. But — and it’s a big but — there was no agreement on how to pay for such a wide-ranging and expensive proposal.
The leaders say they’re waiting for Trump to outline his ideas for that in three weeks.
Emerging from a White House meeting that lasted some 90 minutes, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said they were “very excited about the conversation that we had.” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. called it “very constructive,” adding that it is clear that Democratic leaders and the president “want to get something done on infrastructure in a big and bold way.”
I’m definitely not opposed to a big infrastructure bill so long as it is spent on tangible shit. Our airports are a joke, roads, bridges etc.. need to be fixed. There is no debating this. Of course, who knows how much pork and bullshit they’re going to include in this. But at least it is an attempt to spend something on America. Unlike all the money that is going to ridiculous nonsense that does not benefit the American people.
But here’s the thing. What good is spending $2 trillion on infrastructure if we have all sorts of diseased goblin hordes flooding into our country? The invasion needs to be stopped otherwise we could spend $20 trillion on infrastructure and it wouldn’t matter. The country will only be turned into a third world shithole if this continues.
Martial law should be declared on the border. Hell, invade Mexico if needed. If we have a $700 billion military it might as well be used to defend America’s actual interests? Right?
