Trump has vowed to work on repairing infrastructure.

Find a way to spin that to make Trump evil. It's almost a sport.

What crumbling infrastructure? Do you have an example?
The last time I heard this stupid shit, South Florida had 5 lanes of traffic on each side of the i95 corridor though Ft Lauderdale. Obama's shovel ready rhetoric turned turned that well efficient stretch of interstate into a bottle neck of 3 lanes on each side near Ft Lauderdale international airport. The most busiest portion of i95 in the State. What we have now is grid lock from Boca Raton all they way downto US1 in downtown Miami every single day all day long. What was just 15 to 20 minutes each way, with occasional gridlock for me to get to work is now over 45 minutes regardless what time of day it is.
Now as I sat in traffic I get the added bonus listening to some Shit Head on NPR WLRN opining about how South Florida's infrastructure is crumbling and how it's proof we all need to take the bus and train.

Fuck off and Die Libholes!

When you have money to pay people's welfare benefits, but none for roads, this is what happens.

When you have money to pay for tax cuts for the rich, and multiple fronts of war, but none for roads, this is what happens.

There, fixed it for you.

Can't wait to see the revolutionary TRUMPLIGULA! RESORT! TOLL! ROADS!

Or worse yet, toll roads to get to a Trump Resort (although I have actually done that).

Trump wants to cut discretionary spending. People affected are upset because they are afraid that nobody will notice any difference after they are gone.

It's still a good time to buy Real Estate. Just ask NAR. They would never lie.

Would totally support that. Bring us a big fat domestic spending bill Trump. Do it! I totally have faith that you will get it past Ryan and the House. MAGA.

Yup, Trump's infrastructure plan is just a plan to give away public ownership of public goods. Then we will have to pay tolls or use fees to use it. THAT is the plan.
Reading nakedcapitalism blog is highly recommended. Scan the headlines at least once every week.

Look guys....Everyone wants everything. Free education, guaranteed jobs, nice houses, nice cars, vacations, excellent infrastructure.
But no one wants to pay for it. Good luck.
