Getting it started right. This should've been done long ago. Finally we have a leader taking this seriously so we can get back to normal.    

I don't know about you but I feel a weight lifted off my shoulders.  Trump out and Adults are now in charge.  While I'm sure there will be policies I won't agree with, that is secondary to having

Your post isn't coherent. Dr. Seuss's estate manager decided not to sell 6 of his books. It's perfectly fine for a business to stop selling a book, and this is a good enough reason to do it, not

-"The total new spending in the plans would likely be $3 trillion, a person familiar with them said."

 

-"It would spend heavily on infrastructure improvements, clean energy deployment and the development of other “high-growth industries of the future” like 5G telecommunications."

 

-"The first plan, centered on infrastructure, includes large portions of the plan Mr. Biden offered in the 2020 election. His campaign predicted that Mr. Biden’s investments would create 5 million new jobs in manufacturing and advanced industries, on top of restoring all the jobs lost last year in the Covid-19 crisis."

 

-"The second plan under discussion is focused on what many progressives call the nation’s human infrastructure — students, workers and people left on the sidelines of the job market — according to documents and people familiar with the discussions. It would spend heavily on education and on programs meant to increase the participation of women in the labor force, by helping them balance work and caregiving. It includes free community college, universal pre-K education, a national paid leave program and efforts to reduce child care costs."

 

"Mr. Biden’s advisers plan to present the proposal to congressional leaders this week."

It's so big because we have been playing world police and neglecting our own home for so long.

 

But to your point, the article points out sizeable tax increases on high earners and corporations to offset some of the expense.

They will need to find a new viable revenue stream for sure. 


Cut defense budget. Get out of endless wars. Stop building trillion dollar planes that dont work. Stop making s#!t up about Iran and trying to start a new war. There, just saved a few trillion. This is the kinda stuff we need to be spending trillions on, the future of this country. Not war.

Agree whole heartedly.

It just never comes to fruition.

Agree with both of you. The cost is CRAZY high, but we do have a lot of catching up to do since the last several administrations have ignored infrastructure. 

 

Just rebuilding our D-grade bridges is going to cost a chunk of change, and we should be going way above and beyond that.

I agree here, but let’s not stop with that.  Let’s look at every portion of government spending and get rid of the fraud, waste, and abuse.  Let’s eliminate the needless end of year spending rush that government accounts make on unused fiscal year money.  They do this in order to show they used their entire budget during a fiscal year so they get the same budget plus the increase the following year.  Lots of waste there too.
