no conservative can possibly think this is a good idea.
i guess folks just forgot about the infrastructure shovel ready bloat obama put forth in 2009.
iím guessing you supported that?
keynesian economics - itís not just for progressive/liberal/democrats anymore.
I happen to agree with your position on infrastructure spending. While Trump did promise that during his campaign, it was one of his promises that I disagreed with and I hope does not see the light of day.

However, if it does pass we can hope that the money will actually be spent on infrastructure and not simple a giveaway to favored supporters like the stimulus was.
