house Bill H.R. 2

$1.5 Trillion For Highways, Public Transit, Airports, & Energy Efficiency Programs

Argument in favor

This transformational bill would invest $1.5 trillion in upgrading America’s highways, public transit, and aviation infrastructure while taking significant steps to rebuild schools & hospitals, and improving energy efficiency in both transportation & infrastructure.

Our infrastructure has been crumbling more and more year by year. I like the inclusion of energy efficiency improvements as part of the process. It is not clear which businesses would have the most to gain from this legislation so it is doubtful that this bill would get past the trumpublican Senate. It should still be pushed to get some public debate started. We will hopefully have corrected the trumpublican domination of the Senate and have ridden ourselves of Morbidity Mitch, our country’s archbishop of trumpublican evil - and we can continue to debate the bill and get our infrastructure repairs underway early next year.

Much needed repair of crumbling infrastructure as well as provide jobs for all the unemployed will give the economy a much needed boost! @Jill: My father-in-law, a civil engineer warned us that bridges in the Washington DC area were about to collapse and needed replacement around the Reagan era.

While we need to get the economy rolling I worry the thief in chief will steal as much of the funds he can. He’s proven not even money earmarked for our military families is safe.

Argument opposed

This bill represents nothing more than a partisan messaging bill, as Democrats opted against a bipartisan process in favor of advancing climate change policies from the “green new deal” at the expense of making real improvements to transportation & infrastructure programs.

All of this pork rolled into a CoVid19 bill. I have yet to see a pothole suffering from a virus infection.

I would not support this bill as written. While some of the items are needed and long over due, the Democrats screw up the bill by adding non-related crap.

The devil is in the details. 1.5$Trillion! Republicans, don't reach for the Democrat carrots. Read US History on the Republic and relive the struggle of building our nation. Let's face it, the founding fathers did the grunt work. It's your time to smooth the rough edges of our future. A democrat.future will oversee stagnation.

    This bill is integral to our country’s economy. One critical element that should be included is the Buy American provision. Infrastructure projects should use materials sourced in the US when tax dollars are being spent to fund those projects!

    Yes as long as nothing passes until next year. I absolutely do not want ass clown or his cult to even have the possibility of touching a penny of this. Not ass clown’s construction company, (There should be a construction company right? After all, he is the greatest builder of all time!) or through connections—nothing, zero, zilch, nada, no money to ass clown. We do know he likes to get this for that. He’s a cheater

    Wow. Part of the government is working. What a great way to get people who need them, jobs. Plus It would invest $1.5 trillion in upgrading America’s highways, public transit, and aviation infrastructure while taking significant steps to rebuild schools & hospitals, and improving energy efficiency in both transportation & infrastructure.

    We do need infrastructure spending and improvements in this country, and hopefully it can help get people back to work. A majority of Americans support green initiatives that will fight climate change, so this bill should prioritize sustainability and energy efficiency. Anybody against this is just standing in the way while the world burns.

    As I read the pros of this it smacked of a hidden agenda and then the cons confirmed my suspicions. This would cost taxpayers into poverty into infinity. It’s an absolute no for me.

    What? We are now worried about roads, infrastructure, etc.? We have needed these for 12 years. However, our GOP friends have been the party of “ we aren’t giving Obama a win” and now they have Putin’s puppet (DJT) and they want to actually work on America while denying tRump knew Russia was putting a bounty on our men and women who serve our country. DISGRACEFUL! FIRE them all. Send them home to their states to serve their time in prison. Disgusting.

    Brian, unfortunately, I have “Comrade” Rep. Brady who will probably vote “No”, while the Congress passes the bill, and then Cruz and Cornyn can take a very, very, very long vacation waiting for “Moscow” Mitch to bring it up in the Senate since it’s not about a judge!!😫😩
