    Infrastructure as in roads, bridges, and highways? We pay state gasoline taxes. Let the states handle those.

    BTW, wasn't Obama's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 supposed to fix all that? Why are we still having infrastructure problems after his $1 trillion giveaway?

    What planet do you live on? Only 1/3 of the ARRA went to infrastructure, about $250 Billion, over three years. A small fraction of what was/is needed.

    Actually, it was much less - $118 Billion

    The political theory doesn't take into account the new tax law and the companies that will be coming back to the U.S. and investing in American workers and the booming economy and the will of the people regardless of the obstructionist dying democrat party.

    What happened to the trillion dollar ARRA that Obama passed in 2009?

    We already used all of that money on infrastructure?

    I’d love to see an accounting of how that $1 trillion was spent.

    Almost 300 billion of the stimulus went to tax cuts but you'll never hear a RWnut admit that.
