    Do You Support or Oppose President-Elect Trump's Big Infrastructure Spending Plan?

    We don't yet know exactly what President-Elect Trump's big infrastructure spending plan is, although it is expected to be quite large.  Do you Do You Support or Oppose Trump's idea of spending $100 billions on rebuilding infrastructure in the U.S.?

    absolutely support it. have supported it the whole time obama wanted to do it. we need to modernize. ive seen people say, after a trip to europe or japan, that coming back to america is like stepping back  in time.

    Who wouldn't support an infrastructure plan? No one argues it isn't needed especially after Obama's failed stimulus that never delivered on infrastructure. What people wouldn't support is a facade of a plan like Obama proposed with the stimulus with non existent shovel ready projects.

    Shortly after the passage of the Recovery Act in 2009, Vice President Joseph Biden urged local politicians not to spend the money on "stupid things." They ignored his advice, and so did Mr. Biden. The federal government poured billions into the government and education sectors, where unemployment was low, but spent only about 10% on promised infrastructure, though the unemployment rate in construction was running in double digits. And some of the individual projects funded by the law were truly appalling. $783,000 was spent on a study of why young people consume malt liquor and marijuana. $92,000 went to the Army Corps of Engineers for costumes for mascots like Bobber the Water Safety Dog. $219,000 funded a study of college "hookups."

    You will not see these kind of Democrat ripoffs of the government with Donald Trump, for one thing the media would never let him get away with it like they did Obama.

    From old days as a manager I always took a stance. I don’t care who is to blame. We have to make it better beginning with ‘Now’.

    Yes, I am in favor of spending on infrastructure more so this morning. I have followed infrastructure in my region – San Diego county, and then California. But, a peek around the web today I see only articles about infrastructure failing in the U.S. today. Of importance is it won’t take billions . . . it will take trillions. It is estimated 3.6 trillion by 2020. Wow!!! We will reach that at the end of Trump’s term.

    If any wish to understand its complexity today take a peek at a 2013 report by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), which is 3 years ago. It shows 16 talking points. The only one with a B, but a minus, was solid waste. There are 11 with D and four with a C. To me that is alarming.

    I certainly  do support rebuilding our infrastructure no matter which party is in power. Our country is literally falling apart. However, what I don't support is foolish plans like I'm seeing right now, tearing down a really well-built WPA/CCC bridge and replacing it with a piece built out of modern recycled steel which has lost some of its integrity. When they tried to implode this strong old bridge, it took it 5 hours to fall and made us the laughing stock of the international news media.
    We need new water and sewer systems, not more high-rises for government-supported recipients/tenants. We need fresh clean water, not hog farms with their waste polluting our scenic rivers. We don't need coal-fired generating plants belching out smoke and other pollutants like they do in China. This is what I'm seeing right now. Big government has turned a blind eye, and I don't expect big business run by a big business president to do any better. But a gal can hope.
