Buttigieg Addresses Infrastructure With $1 Trillion Plan

Yet again, a Democrat doesn’t understand that money doesn’t grow on trees. Pete Buttigieg has released a new plan to help with the infrastructure around the country. It sounds impressive, but it should since it’s estimated to cost around $1 trillion. Since that’s a completely unrealistic number to spend given today’s economy, it’s an empty campaign promise that he’s touting.

Buttigieg’s plan would involve working with local, city and state governments so that sustainable infrastructure in place. It would also, as he explains, establish “opportunity, equity, and empowerment.” Wow, that sounds great. How much is it going to cost? Only $1 trillion? Let’s pump the brakes on this one.

The former mayor from South Bend released a 17-page plan that helps to improve the plan. He believes that it will not only create six million jobs around the country but also provide access to cleaner drinking water and lower water bills. It would repair bridges and roads by 2030 while also investing in infrastructure so that the country can grow considerably over the next 10 years.

His plan is pretty detailed, but it’s talking about money that simply doesn’t exist. He wants to double the BUILD grant in place by the Transportation Department so that it provides $2 billion worth of funding for infrastructure projects. He also wants to boost passenger and transit rails by 2030 while also repairing many of the deficient bridges across the US. Both of these are expensive undertakings, which is where most of the trillion dollars will go toward.

Everyone knows that the infrastructure in the US needs to improve. The roads are filled with potholes. Many major cities don’t have adequate public transportation. Traffic is horrendous. However, this isn’t a platform promise that Buttigieg can make. Which city gets priority? Where is the money going to come from? How can everything be fixed without causing devastating detours in the cities? There are reasons why infrastructure is a problem – there’s a lack of resources.

It’s probably a good thing that the Democratic presidential candidate wants to be so lenient on immigration, too. If it were up to him, we’d have open borders in no time. He’s expecting to grow the country considerably, so they’re likely going to come from Central America. As for the millions of jobs he’s going to create, he’s made sure that the illegal immigrants will have employment opportunities, too.

Additionally, he wants to boost the FCC Lifeline program so that broadband goes out to un and underserved communities. The cost on that will be an $80 million investment. The crazy thing is that many of the Dems are in full support of spending this kind of money – yet they complain about the billions that Trump wanted to build a wall for the purpose of national security.

Buttigieg’s infrastructure plan seems to get more grandiose as it continues. He wants to invest $20 billion to replace lead service lines by 2030 so that lead-free water can be guaranteed. Oh, and he wants to put another $100 billion into a Lead-Safe Communities fund so that lead contamination can be addressed when it comes to paint, soil, and water.

The way that he’s throwing $10 billion here and $100 billion here throughout his plan makes it sound like the US economy is blossoming a lot more than it really is. Since he’s a newbie in the world of politics, he may not be aware that the country is currently in a deficit. There’s not enough money to pay for the existing programs. However, with a vote for Buttigieg, there’s a vote to send the country into an even bigger deficit by about $1 trillion. It’s just money after all, right?

Or, perhaps, he’ll go the way of some of his rivals. Sanders and Warren are famous for talking about expensive plans that will involve raising taxes. Only, they change the subject as soon as someone mentions a tax hike because, as much as people want change, they don’t want to pay more for it.

There are a whole lot of promises in the infrastructure plan. The problem is that each and every one of the promises is unrealistic. It’s looking at this 17-page plan that points out just how green Buttigieg is when it comes to politics and the real world. It’s a great idea but it’s not realistic – and anyone who thinks that it’s a possibility needs to prepare for the biggest hike in taxes that they have ever seen.

  47. I have been in over seven states this past year and every one of those states are already deeply involved in highway infrastructure but being a liberal moron like this she/he they only know how to talk about how to waste another trillion dollars before we do anything else. Remember the famous words from PUSlosi on OBLABBER Care, “We need to pass it before we see what is in it”, kind of like what you do on the porcelain throne every morning.

  48. LETS PRAY THAT GOD WAKES UP ENOUGH PEOPLE TO VOTE TRUMP BACK IN WITH A LANDSLIDE VOTE THAT EVEN THE DEMON_RAT SOCIALIST CAN,T DISPUTE EVEN WITH ALL OF THEIR LYING / CONIVING IDEAS AND THOUGHTS

  49. It won’t matter since he WON’T be elected anyway. He’s WAY OUT THERE politically. He’s NOT POTUS Material, just like NONE of the other Democrats are either . . . The American People are wary, seeing THROUGH all this INSANELY STUPID nonsense. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  50. Actually it is a viable idea. First is the cost. The states have to assume 90% 0f the cost, which means that they will have to trim their expenditures. Cut the pretty and nice to have things to what we need now. The leadership will have to forgo increasing their expense accounts and wages, and staff. This is the big stumbling block, politicians and their appointees want to keep their full rice bowl and will want to increase taxes and reduce services. It’s time to reduce the “advisors and other highly paid non workers”. These projects will reduce unemployment and increase the tax base, therefore effectively reducing costs.
    What I have written has been written numerous times but always shot down by the political hirelings as unnecessary as the new furniture that we want to buy for City Hall etc., is a priority and will give our city/county/state a better look. Very expensive lipstick for a Political Pig.
    People, remember that these people work for you, and need your vote to keep their high paying job. Gather like minded voters and start talking to the leadership, if they won’t talk to you, talk to the media. There are always hungry reporters.
    BTW, I am an independent voter and not too fussy about any politician, and dislike socialism. Good Luck.

  51. this so called man and the rest of the lying socialist think that the middle class working people are going to pay for all their pet projects. they keep talking about how to get the rich to pay more taxes i wonder if they include themselves in that equation. why punish the rich they worked hard for their money or inherited it and why should the middle class pay for more taxes then we already do. the only ones stupid enough to buy into their idiotic ideas are the ones looking to get everything for free and not have to work for what they want or need. i hope people wise up and don’t vote for these idiots hoping that the illegals will carry them in california, new york, colorada, vermont, virginia, and the other hell holes that democraps run.

  52. They have no idea how they will have the money for this! They just shoot their lying mouths off just to hear themselves speak! We are not stupiud like they think we are! We kniw better!

  53. WHY DO THESE LYING DUMARATS KEEP PROMISING THE WORLD,WHEN THEY CANNOT EVEN TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT ANYTHING? DO THEY THINK EVERYONE IS A MORON WHO BELIEVES EVERYTHING THEY SAY,OR ARE THEY JUST SPEAKING TO THE MORONS WHO WILL VOTE FOR THEM?

  54. Except it is not a ridiculous amount of money to spend on this nation’s infrastructure, stop providing free security detail for the business ventures of the wealthy of this nation and our politicians allies start with withdrawing all our military personnel from the Middle East provide the wealthy 4 months to get their own Security personnel in place and no more time than that.

    When it comes to money other than the $3,500,000,000 more likely far closer to $4,000,000,000 to israel per year protecting the mineral rights of the wealthy has easily cost this nation into the trillions of dollars.

    1. Blah, blah, blah……Buttgig hasn’t the brains to think that deep. Just more promises by the left solely to get elected. beyond that take the freebie programs away. Make welfare a 6 month assistance program again and not a lifestyle.
