Leave it to the Left to destroy the creation of American jobs and infrastructure upgrades. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Lefty Chuck Schumer (NY) are set to demand that President Trump support dramatic climate change measures and “substantial, new and real revenue” (aka taxes) as part of a bipartisan infrastructure package. Pelosi argued that the package “has to be at least $1 trillion,” and Schumer is pressing Trump to pay for it by “undoing some of the 2017 tax cuts for the wealthy.” Translation: we’d like taxpayers to give us lots more money so that we can blow it on useless “green” projects that favor union labor…and maybe, just maybe will improve our infrastructure.

The top two Democratic leaders on Monday told President Trump that any bipartisan infrastructure package needs to take into consideration climate change and include “substantial, new and real revenue” — a preview of the coming fight over tax hikes.
Trump will host Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) at the White House on Tuesday for discussions on a major infrastructure bill, one of the few policy areas that could see action amid divided government and as the 2020 race heats up.
Democrats want the measure for roads, bridges, waterways and other projects to be paid for with tax increases, and with a final price tag of at least $1 trillion over 10 years.
