Trump to Outline Infrastructure Plan That Includes Rural Funding

Trump to Outline Infrastructure Plan That Includes Rural Funding

Matt Bevin and two lieutenant governors from OH, the president laid out details to pay for infrastructure improvements with $200 billion in tax breaks, which Trump said he hopes will leverage $1 trillion worth of construction over time. They want to see us all come together.

"Every single thing is obstruction", the president continued, adding that "if I was in that party, I would not do it that way".

That's a far different view than Schumer had in the days immediately after Trump's election, when he told The Associated Press that infrastructure investment was an area where Trump appeared more aligned with Democrats than with Republicans. Boy, have they tried. Trump told these families stories about how they were suffering because of the Government run health care system. Wednesday's remarks were focused partly on the importance of inland waterways and their vital role in transporting corn, steel, coal and other products.

Kushner and Bannon were also considered the aides most ripe for removal among all voters, largely driven by their lack of support among Democrats and independents. And Comey's prepared remarks confirm earlier press reports that Trump had asked Comey directly to drop the Flynn probe into his contacts with Russian officials ― contacts that Acting Attorney General Sally Yates warned could make Flynn a blackmail target.

"Jared has actually become much more famous than me - I'm a little upset at that", Trump said of his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner at the top of the meeting.

The president spoke in Cincinnati about revamping America's transportation system by taking $200 billion in federal spending and leveraging that into a trillion dollar public-private partnership to improve the nation's roadways, runways, railways and rivers.

"I've talked to the president several times on the phone". I'm sure I missed a few, so if you were personally recognized by the president during his speech about infrastructure, feel free to email me and I'll update the post.

Still, he said the industry is concerned about Trump's recent budget proposal, which he said could result in higher costs for the commercial users that finance the waterways' upkeep. And according to recently published government data, 13,246 people were enrolled in exchange coverage in those 20 counties.

Trump pointed to a government program that allows the private sector to tap into low-priced government loans called the Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act as a way to leverage federal funds with state, local, and private sector funding. He plans to spur growth and investment by "dramatically reducing permitting time for projects from 10 years to 2 years and slashing regulations to speed up the decision making process".

The concern for Chrisman and supporters like him, however, remained squarely on infrastructure.

"Now it's the Senate's turn to act -I hope they're going to act in a very positive manner", Trump said. To his credit, that's true, and the problem is only going to get worse.

"Crumbling infrastructure will be replaced with new roads, bridges, tunnels, airports, and railways gleaming across our very, very lovely land". Trump spoke about a wide range of topics, including Obamacare, the recent arms deal with Saudi Arabia, and worldwide terrorism, while promising to both cut taxes and somehow fund a $1 trillion infrastructure program by stripping government regulations and expediting environmental impact assessments (don't worry, he said our waterways will still be the "cleanest" in the world).
