President Trump has always managed to stay in the news for various reasons. No one can deny the fact that the majority of the times he was there for the wrong reasons. At the end of the day, it surely got him a lot of publicity and popularity.
One can never be a complete maniac unless or until he goes that extra mile to be one. There are a few things that President Trump has done that will contribute to the betterment of the country. One among them is deciding to spend 2 trillion dollars for the infrastructure development of the country. In this article, we will see it in detail.
It is really great news that Congressional Democrats and President Trump are proceeding further with the plan of investing two trillion dollars on the infrastructure development of the nation. According to a reliable source, the plans are devised in such a way to improve roads, bridges, schools and also high-speed internet.
Last week when the Democratic leaders emerged out of the meeting they stated that President Donald Trump had promised them that he would come up with fresh ideas to for footing the bill. But some of the Republican lawmakers are suggesting to have more meetings in the White House to come up with a sensible plan as there is a huge amount of money that is involved.
Statement from eminent personalities
Scott Perry, R-Pennsylvania who is an eminent congressman, has stated that he is and most of the Americans are frustrated. It is because there is a lack of considerable action for America’s infrastructure. He also mentioned that there was no hearing on what has to be done. In the present moment, Perry is serving in the House in the Transportation Department and Infrastructure Committee. According to his perspective, it is necessary for the Congress to come with an infrastructure plan of its own. He also mentioned that it was a very long overdue that congressmen have sat on a table and discussed infrastructure development that the government can afford.
According Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer each and every one of us wants to do something when it comes to infrastructure. It is actually great that a group of Democrats who were lead by Chuck Schumer asked for one trillion and they got two trillion dollars instead. He also mentioned that it was President Trump who wanted to push to two trillion dollars.
Even though it is a great idea to invest so much in infrastructure, there are a few things that need to be addressed. Perry stated that even if the gas taxes were raised by 50 cents, that only comes to 300 billion for ten years.
It is expected that the two teams will meet in the White House after three weeks to have further discussions about President Trump paying 2 trillion dollars for infrastructure.
