    So now the plans to fix the roads and rebuild our country is put off. Ha! Well I heard yesterday that what the real deal is not that Trump is striking back at Pelosi .Truthfully Trump and the Republicasn don't actually have a plan for infrastructure and wants a cover up for it so they blamed Pelosi!

    When is Trump gonna do his job????????? We need infrastructure........

    No we are spending too much taking Military away from their posts putting them on duty at the wall. We dont have the money to take 25 percent away, thats why hes hiding.

    It looks like some 20+ Trillion $$ is missing. We never been told the truth from day one. We needed military to support petrodollar but it had collapsed.

    The tax dollars that might have been spent on infrastructure never got into the federal budget. Instead, they went to tax breaks for major corporations who, instead of using it for expansion to produce more full-time jobs, used the money to buy back their stocks ( a boon to investors in the market).

    If it is any consolation the UK is not good at infrastructure spending either (unless you live in London)
