Republicans should make it clear to President Trump that they will vehemently oppose any attempt to reach a $ 2 trillion infrastructure deal with Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.
At a time when the federal debt amounted to $ 22 trillion, the Republicans have already joined Trump by agreeing to cut taxes, increase military spending, exceed spending limits created during the Tea Party period and ignore the expenses of rights. It would be a failure of duty to accompany the latter from another excessive spending consumption.
Trump has resorted to expanding infrastructure, one of his many ruptures among the government's conservative limited. Fortunately, until now, its efforts to fulfill its objectives have been thwarted, mainly because the current political environment makes it difficult for bipartite transmission. We can only hope that partisan disincentives to give the other side a legislative victory will again condemn a huge infrastructure waste.
But Republicans anxious to limit spending should take no risk. If enough Republicans protest against infrastructure legislation, this would help eliminate this idea, since Democrats also need to worry about defections of members who conceptually reject the idea of giving Trump more legitimacy. by adopting an important package of bipartisan infrastructures.
