Trump Responds to Hillary’s Massive ‘Infrastructure’ Boondoggle; Conservatives Will Be Livid

One of the biggest boondoggles of liberalism is “infrastructure” spending, a vague term used to pad the pockets of federal politicians, bureaucrats, and their crony pals while screwing the taxpayer.

Take the Obama “stimulus” plan. Remember that? An amazing $862 billion was confiscated from taxpayers (correction: added to the debt) and we were all told it would go to fix all of the nation’s “crumbling bridges and highways,” to repair the nation’s “infrastructure.” We were sold the bill of goods that “shovel ready” jobs would be created.

How’d that work out and where’d the money go?


Well, that was 2009. This is 2016, and the same line of b.s. is being furthered by Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who proposed a massive “infrastructure” spending program (this one “only” $275 billion), another boondoggle to hose taxpayers and reward her donors.

Not to be out done, another New York liberal (there are two in the race, in case you didn’t notice), Donald Trump was asked by FOX Business Trump sycophant Stuart Varney about his infrastructure plan.

Trump said that he would spend “at least double” Hillary Clinton’s, which would place the number north of a half-a-trillion dollars.

STUART VARNEY: “How much are you talking about, for infrastructure?

DONALD TRUMP: “Well, I would say at least double her numbers, and you’re going to really need more than that.” 

VARNEY: “Where does the money come from? If you’re talking close to a trillion, if that’s the number you’re talking about, where do you get that money from?”

TRUMP: “We’re going to go out with a fund — we’ll get a fund — we’ll make a phenomenal deal with the low-interest rates. And we’re going to have to rebuild our infrastructure. We have no choice.

VARNEY: Who would put money into that fund?

TRUMP: “Excuse me?” 

VARNEY: Who would put money into that fund?

TRUMP: People, investors. People would put money into the fund. Citizens would put money into the fund. 

“More than” double Hillary’s boondoggle? Seriously? And “investors” would put money into “the fund?” Why in the hell would they do that and what would be their return on investment? The above are the words of a progressive madman with no concept of reality.

When investors put money into an investment, they not only demand a return on their investment, but they want a RETURN OF THEIR INVESTMENT! How exactly would that happen? Toll roads? Toll bridges? Who the hell knows. Trump certainly doesn’t and neither do his idiotic worshipers.

Setting aside one of the tenants of conservatism — federalism — which makes the case that spending on roads, bridges, etc., should be done on the city, state, and local levels where those doing the spending are closer to their voters, for those who thought Donald Trump was a conservative, you need to wake up.

There are two liberal Democrats in this race — one is a corrupt liar, and one is a narcissistic sociopath. But both are big government progressives, so pick your poison, or choose none of the above.
