    Exclamation AOC: Go Bigger on Infrastructure. Biden’s $2 Trillion Not Enough, ‘We Can Do $10"

    We Need to Go Bigger on Infrastructure — Biden’s $2 Trillion Not Enough, ‘We Can Do $10 Trillion’

    Pam Key 31 Mar 2021

    Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” that President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan over eight years is not big or fast enough.

    Ocasio-Cortez said, “I think that the vision that President Biden and the administration has laid out, you’re right, has surprised a lot of us in a positive way, and in the detail and the thought that’s here, the scope of it is really encouraging except I think the how that $2.2 trillion, $2.25 trillion over eight years, I have serious concerns that it’s not enough to realize the very inspiring vision that Biden has advanced. So I believe that those of us here, especially as progressives within the Democratic Party — we know that there is so much more opportunity here. In order for us to realize this inspiring vision, we need to go way higher. That’s what’s going to help us actually deliver on this really promising and inspiring vision the president laid out today.”

    She continued, “I think that we need to really have some shorter timelines, some urgency, greater urgency in this package, and I think some of the investments need to be greater.”

    She added, “We’re looking at ideals and what we think is the actual investment that can create tens of millions of good union jobs in this country that can shore up our health care, our infrastructure, our housing, and doing it in a way that draws down our carbon figures to help us get in line with IPCC standards we’re talking about realistically $10 trillion over ten years. And I know that may be an eye-popping figure for some people, but we need to understand that we are in a devastating economic moment. Millions of people in the United States are unemployed. We have a truly crippled health-care system and a planetary crisis on our hands. We’re the wealthiest nation in the history of the world. So we can do $10 trillion.”

    If we're spending money on infrastructure, my backyard could use a new deck.

    It would create at least 14 jobs
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    LOL!

    The trick is to invest in stuff that goes up when the government does the wrong thing. That way you get happy instead of mad.

    I'm rooting for as much govt spending as possible.

    The amount of money going to special interests is staggering. I thought these people despised corporate America???!

    Lets see . Two trillion covid bill passed with 500 billion for citizens and 50 billion for covid with roughly 1.4 trillion in pork and or graft puts debt at 28 to 30trillion . Add 3 trillion for legislation being cooked up now ( all graft and pork , maybe one bridge ) puts debt at 33 trillion , add one trillion for debt added ea yr ( 3 trillion in taxes collected , 4 trillion spent) puts it around 34 trillion , add 200 trillion in unfunded liabilities gets us at 234 trillion , give AOC 7 to 8 trillion more in graft/pork/ one bridge and your at roughly 242 trillion in debt .Thanks NY .

    Every $#@!hole country in world history has gone down the AOC road. Her ideas are an actual existential threat. Once a country starts failing it can take decades if ever to recover.

    But instead the focus is on the epidemic of about a dozen Asians killed by white people every year.

    Last statistic I saw for 2021 so far showed two...2..."hate crimes" (that's everything from murder to "shut up, slope!") committed by white people against Asians.

    The rest...24 or so IIRC, were committed by coloreds.

    That was in NYC for 2020, (26 of 28 were non-white perpetrators) but the trends follow in the other cities.

    And no one wants to hear it, but if we keep allowing an invasion across the southern border, you will see more and more AOCs.

    Her district, Archie Bunker's hometown, is now 46 percent migrant, 50 percent Hispanic and only 18 percent white.

    From my perspective we should be cutting off immigration completely. Tourniquet the limbs, seal the box, pack the junctions. Stop the $#@!ing bleeding.

    Texas especially. No more $#@!ing CAssholes should be allowed in.

    Yeah. It's insanity. The country has 340 million people and the focus is on the two people killed. Or the couple of unarmed black people killed by cops.

    Whereas drug illegality probably kills at least ten thousand from violence and unsafe drugs. Tens of thousands are likely killed from the slow FDA process that keeps life saving drugs off the market for years and limits access because of the high cost to get a drug approved.
