Spend Spend Spend: Dems eye big infrastructure package, with or without Trump

“There isn’t even lip service paid to doing the right thing with regard to spending in Washington these days. It’s not like we have 20+ trillion in debt or anything.”

(From The Hill)

“I think we should take a vote on an infrastructure package that the whole caucus can support, and we should make that as broad as possible and as generous as possible, because I don’t think we should wait for the administration if it looks like they’re not going to support it,” Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), co-chair of the Progressive Caucus, told The Hill while walking into the Speaker’s office…

…my intent would be to make it as big as possible because that’s what we need to get the caucus to support it, something that shows we are united as a caucus and that infrastructure investment into jobs is absolutely critical.”

“’Generous as possible.’ Who supplies the generosity?”
