Holy chit batman!

Where the hell is the FED/State Gas tax we have been paying all this time? Huh Angry

Quote:
The administration's plan is centered on using $200 billion in federal money to leverage local and state tax dollars to fix America's infrastructure, such as roads, highways, ports and airports.

Quote:
States, local governments and other project sponsors could use the grants — which administration officials view as incentives — for no more than 20 percent of the cost.



So what they're really saying is after years of paying a Fed/state Gas tax, we the American people, will be taxed even more by Fed, state and local levels Gov's to pay for this folly?

Good! Spend all our money before it is all gone and there's no more left to spend or borrow!

What!? You cited Fox News...that source cannot possibly be reliable. Every LNF leftist knows that it is faux news, or so I thought. I guess it is reliable when we choose to deem it as such.
(Please note...I am not declaring Luther as a leftist.)

Our infrastructure is in horrible condition, we need to fix it now or it'll just cost us more in the future.

Maybe we could cut some of the entitlements and fluff from the budget.

What happened to that awesome tax cut supposedly providing us with more revenue (And that’s after paying for itself)?

It IS costing us more in the future..  Obama attempts at infrastructure spending was blocked by Republicans several times ..

With record job losses from the Bush economy, labor was cheap..  Now, here in the future,  labor and money will cost more ..

I don't think anyone was claiming what to are sarcastically asserting: that revenues to the government begin increasing within weeks of cutting taxes.

We're not talking about a 2-week infrastructure budget, either.  The common refrain is that tax cuts more than pay for themselves.  I guess Trump and the republicans are just gonna have to gin up an even bigger tax cut to pay for this!

I heard one of the Congress people say that entitlement reform is being tied to this? That people will have to work before claiming entitlements? I hope this is true.

The infrastructure plan itself is way to expensive and will lead to a lot of waste.
