The new infrastructure deal has passed the Senate, with billions in new spending on roads, bridges, rail, broadband and electric vehicles.

"This deal signals to the world that our democracy can function, deliver, and do big things. As we did with the transcontinental railroad and the interstate highway, we will once again transform America and propel us into the future," President Joe Biden said Wednesday in a statement released by the White House.

    1. @TheFrencky – I understand what you are saying but taxes go up as the deficit increases. The deficit never goes down. So if the money isn’t paying down the deficit and it’s not fixing the roads as it was intended to, why would I be okay with more taxes? Clearly our money is being mismanaged.

    2. That was admitted by David Rockefeller and founding families of the federal reserve that they funded the Women’s Rights movement for two reasons.

      1. Get the portion of the country into the taxable sector.

      2. Let the system raise and mold the children. Schools, tv, video games and streets because both parents are at work when kids get home from school.

    3. People can spin this how every they want. I do not follow conspiracy platforms, I don’t turn on any media, I don’t do politics.

      A president is only the spokesperson for the corrupt machine. It all falls back to scratching the backs of their elite circle. We are only the slaves they pit against each other so they can push their agendas while we are at each other.MSM, social media, paid podcasts are the tools.

      What is the narrative and language of almost every other report or news article? Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, Jewish, Transgender, Phobias. This is the playbook.

      When’s the last time they just said a man or woman in America? The last face to face interview that the interviewer did not lead or insert,
      So as a black man or woman in America how do you feel about this or that?

      It’s the playbook so we do not unite as one, this government has slowly worked this so now we are in the stages of them completely ruing us and it’s us working and depending on them when it should be them working for us. It’s plain to see the last several years.

      Democracy is 51% ruling over 49%, constitutional Republic is 99% ruling over the 1% the way it should be.

    1. @Gabe Mendoza you do realize that the American people don’t vote on these bills ,right ?
      You trust government too much.but hey , you be you .
      Unicorns farting rainbows somewhere in your utopia is a wonderful fantasy

    2. @Nuts Flexmore wait , trump’s infrastructure bill was pretty much the same as Bidens , so how exactly is one better than the other ?

    3. @Vivian Spinarski

      They vote in the people who do. Unless the public demands serious reforms in the political arena, which they probably won’t, we’ll always be stuck with rich people politicians who work less for everyone else.

    4. @Gabe Mendoza well why vote for the dinosaurs who have never held a job in their entire lives ? You know , like pelosi , Schumer , McConnell, Biden, sanders etc ?
      Even when new blood is voted in nobody’s happy .
      Then with people like cori Busch , AOC , Omar ,talib , you all vote for crappy people who are out to destroy the country .

    1. There is a bill pending for Term Limits.
      Like the others, It will sit under a blotter on some secretary’s desk.

  1. China : Flying at 160 knots in terms of massive infrastructural development.
    US: What? Hold my beer , I must catch up.

  2. “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” Alexander Tytler

  3. This shows me that at least in the near term there is little hope for this country to get better. We are almost 30 trillion in debt plus over 200 trillion in unfunded liabilities (Social Security , Medicare, Medicaid , Govt Pensions) and these “elites” in DC are saying lets spend another 5-6 trillion on so called infrastructure. Give me a break! I fear for the very young people here.

  4. Our own father have lived up to their own age with the help of herbs and roots, why do we think we can not live long enough with these herbs and roots by Doctor Great, herbs are gift from God to make you well so be grateful and be bless with it.

  5. From now on if you criticize the cdc you can now be jailed for ” misinformation “!
    Thanks non existent infrastructure bill!

  6. Prediction: Not one new bridge will be built. The current bridges we have will look the same and they will just SAY it went to “maintain” the current infrastructure.

  7. Dan Sullivan, R – Alaska
    Thom Tillis, R – N.C.
    Robert F Wicker, R – Miss.
    These are the people that betrayed your country. The people who voted for these people are just as much to blame.

  8. Make sure a list of who voted for and against the bill is published, so those who did not support it cannot take credit in the mid term elections

  9. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE $200.00 INCREASE IN THE DISABILITY AND IN THE SOCIAL SECURITY AND INCREASE IN THE COST OF LIVING ADJUSTMENT EACH YEAR PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Our own father have lived up to their own age with the help of herbs and roots, why do we think we can not live long enough with these herbs and roots by Doctor Great, herbs are gift from God to make you well so be grateful and be bless with it.
