When I think of infrastructure projects I think of bridges, roads, dams, and other public projects, not opera houses.
The sheer scale of critically needed infrastructure projects in America is mind boggling and is only getting worse with every passing day. Take the city of Portland. There are 12 bridges connecting the east and west sides of the city and all but one (a brand new pedestrian and mass-tran only bridge) are in various stages of disrepair. Current estimates suggest it would cost $10 billion to repair/rebuild all the bridges in this city alone. And that's just our bridges. Don't even get me started on my opinions of the city planners who built the highway system feeding into and out of the city.
Zoom out and pick any other major city and you're going to see the same exact issues to varying degrees. We need a moonshot type program to rebuild our nations infrastructure for the 21st Century, but right now we're so stuck in our political crisis that it's basically impossible to get anything done at the national level.
Speaker Pelosi, Leader Schumer, and Donald just agreed to investing $2 trillion in critical infrastructure projects, which is great, but, and it's a pretty big but, the two sides are in different universes when it comes to where that $2 trillion is going to come from. That pesky little detail all but guarantees that absolutely nothing is going to get done anytime soon.
