American infrastructure is crumbling so badly, that the American Society of Civil Engineers rates it at D+, much lower than that of Western Europe. Throughout his campaign the Pumpkin Pinocchio promised to create thousands of new infrastructure jobs. However, his actual plan is to take $millions from the poor and middle classes, convert it to welfare for billionaires investing in for profit infrastructure p0rojects only, creating few, if any new jobs. By contrast, Democrats are offering a REAL infrastructure proposal.

while I am glad to have infrastructure and jobs in the US, I am saddened that minority elect appears to be "stealing" President Obama's proposals and find a supportive rather than opposed Congress

"Democrats need to keep showing Americans what viable government looks like and keep rubbing Republicans' deplorable noses in it."

I just don't know how it could have been said better. (And it may or may not be relevant, but I was kind of tickled to see a cross section of progressives in that group - from Schumer to Sanders and points in between.)

Noted, forwarded, and shared ultra-liberally across four networks!! It wil take an awful lot to really fix the infra-structure as it is now--I keep thinking about something similar to CCC or WPA-Iknow many of the roads in this are werre cut with mule drawn scapers by CCC!! Thanks for sgaring, TomCat!

The more we learn the more I alternate between despair and fury. Fury is winning right now.

Kudos to those Dems who want to see action, and assist with the infrastructure proposal.

Thanks, Tom.

In addition to the two pipeline projects Dave mentioned, two projects that I think are Cherry Point, which was turned down before the waters there became protected that I don't think can be undone, and the east coast LNG project I know less about yet know the local input has been universal opposition. I read that GOP congressional leadership doesn't intend to touch until after what they call funding has been created--only source repatriation that is a measly few billion and thus at most sufficient for these 4 projects probably (most of which were privately funded as proposed). Schumer apparently has met with Trump about the GOP opposition and emphasized need for prevailing wages on infrastructure spending.

Everybody, listen up. Don't agonize - ORGANIZE! People raised hell and stopped the destruction of the ethics office. If we raise enough hell, we can get some real infrastructure work started in this country - and stop those damnable pipelines.

It seems a good plan and a viable plan, so we can rest assured that it'll never make it to a vote.

So the next step this team of democrats needs to take, is to get as much publicity for their plan as possible. Spend party money on it, turn it into a campaign, organize rallies, town-hall meetings, get people informed and thinking about it. No, it won't make it to a vote then either, but at least people will know they're shafted by the Drumpf/GOP plans and react.

Oh, c'mon, Puddy...come to the Dark know you wanna....heh heh heh.

As far as Democrats getting ANYTHING passed from now until 2020 is like a snowball not melting in Hell. Not. Gonna. Happen.

TC, I belive you've summed up the bill's chances correctly: "The chances that the TomCat will abandon felinity and become a dawg are greater than the chances that bill will see a vote at present."

You are correct though: " Nevertheless, Democrats need to keep showing Americans what viable government looks like and keep rubbing Republicans' deplorable noses in it."
