Yesterday, I published an article in which I stated that cooperating with Trump is not an ]option, we should not resist projects that benefit the American people, such as infrastructure spending. Bernie Sanders went even further tan I did, suggesting he would cooperate on such item. I’m sad to inform you the the Fuhrer’s plan is a scam, a tax break and stimulus for only billionaires masquerading as an infrastructure project.

Thanks TC--now we see whether or not he is willing to revise to become what he promised, that becomes worth supporting...but I'm not holding my breath either. The Guardian has begun reporting his supporters turning on him for what are being revealed as empty promises (like this one) wonder NYC is forced to spend over $1 million per day protecting Trump Towers.

When something seems too good to be true, it usually isnt! In the case of Trump, it ALWAYS isn't!

just remember Republicans live in "opposite world" so anything Drump is not doing now that he promised was a planned meaning

I believe that Trump's campaign was the most amazing scam in the history of the universe.

"There it is, The Fuhrer wants to charge taxpayers more for projects that generate profit for billionaires, ignore our infrastructure needs, and create few new jobs, if any."

Did anyone really think that this would be anything other than a way to enrich himself and other already rich people? Do you think that those discontented poor white bigots who voted him expected this? Well, surprise, surprise - bait and switch is an old Donald tactic, get used to four years of it, unless Pence and the Cabinet do him as per Keith in the other thread. This is how he is going to "govern". This is disgusting.

I understand the need for knowledgeable and intelligent people like Bernie and Krugman to call this scam out as to the details. But if people would just grasp that privatization ALWAYS involves US paying MORE to get LESS, they might not even need to.

Why should this even surprise me? I don't believe a thing he says for the betterment of our Nation.

a good rule of thumb is if it's got the Trump name on it it's a scam

I don't believe a word he says so I am not surprised in the least. His followers that he has fooled are in for a rude awakening.

I see how crooked he is, how he is mobbed up, how the fix is always in when it comes to this liar. All he cares about is if we like him. What a dump truck he is. I can hardly wait for his impeachment. He has to be paranoid. The evil media should start talking about how his NY home is being bugged when he is in D.C. and how they bugged all of the offices of his deplorable's. I can hardly wait until his son in law moves the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and brings peace to Palestine and Israel. That's a stretch.
A little grandiosity goes a long way in this guys head, but it is entertaining - sometimes. Impeach Trump !

So, why would anyone be surprised? There is nothing this POS says that one can take at anything even close to face value

This certainly does not surprise me.
Many of Drumpf's followers are already angry because Drumpf seems to be moving away from putting Clinton in prison, something he cannot do anyway.  But those from the rust belt, the ones that want work etc, are really going to be angry when they realise what Drumpf's definition of infrastructure improvements really is.  The devil is in the details, something that Drumpf would not talk about during the campaign, and now we know why.

Drumpf never had a real plan for infrastructure while campaigning and even after his election the plan was nothing more than "It's a trillion dollars plan…which will become, by the way, second to none," no content, no explanation, just like all the other "plans". The opposition of course knew it would be a terrible plan at best, but probably a scam in all likelihood, but couldn't attack him on it because there wasn't anything there for them to attack. The Trump voters accepted this infrastructure hot-air balloon, just like it accepted all the other empty promises, all the other balloons he floated to see which one would catch a breeze and get somewhere. And now he's filling in the plans and they're exactly like the opposition expected them to be. Good for the 1%, bad for the country.

Of course the Democrats and every one else is going to oppose these plans now and that'll be just fine with Drumpf and his cronies because he can then blame anything that fails in this and other plans on the Democrats. And his voters will believe him and the GOP, just as they've done in the past eight years. Democrats should waste no time and start communicating the scam in simple terms any way they can. While they still can…

Thanks, hugs, and stars all around. Bernie had thought there might be something to it, so I was skeptically hopeful.

Very depressing. Infrastructure projects need genuine investment and they would benefit most people.
