McConnell on nuclear option for SCOTUS: Trump's nominee will get confirmed, period
President Trump endorsed a $1 trillion public works project while running, and his campaign site promises to turn "crumbling infrastructure into a golden opportunity for accelerated economic growth and more rapid productivity gains with a deficit-neutral plan targeting substantial new infrastructure investments". Pai has expressed support for the idea in recent months, and President Trump made infrastructure improvements a major campaign issue.
So Senate Democrats, anticipating Donald Trump lifting those sanctions, are working to hold Trump to the same rule as Republicans held Obama to regarding sanctions on Iran. The consultation today with President Trump, Vice President Pence, Leader McConnell, Senator Schumer and Ranking Member Feinstein was necessary and a step in the right direction.
Neither side revealed specifics about how they plan to fund their plans.
One of Trumps most consistent vows on the campaign trail was to invest as much as $1 trillion in repairing the nation's ailing infrastructure, but he left vague numerous details of what he had in mind. Bernie Sanders (I) of Vermont, introduced a $1 trillion infrastructure spending bill.
The plan totals $1 trillion, which would be split between various investments in US roads, ports and water & sewage systems. After being drafted in to harangue the press with a series of falsehoods over the inauguration's crowd size, Trump's press secretary Sean Spicer doubled down on the president's fraudulent claims at the White House press briefing on Tuesday, telling reporters the president "does believe that".
The Democrats' move to put forward a substantive policy that would create millions of jobs - something Trump hasn't done - isn't just smart politics; it's good policy. Last week, the presumption was that Trump would nominate William Pryor to replace the late Antonin Scalia, and Democrats have a history of trying to block Pryor's confirmations to the judiciary. But congressional Republicans are pushing for a different kind of infrastructure plan - one reliant on public-private partnerships and corporate tax credits, The Hill reported.
Lengthy debate remains Democrats' most potent weapon since they can not block any of Trump's nominees without GOP help - the result of their own change to filibuster rules in 2013. Sen. He said he thought Schumer and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's relationship would likely bring deals that benefit both sides.
Senate Democrats released a trillion-dollar plan Tuesday to build roads, schools and maybe even a new train tunnel between NY and New Jersey.
While a showdown over Carson may be viscerally satisfying, one top Senate Democratic aide said, the better play is to spotlight instances when a nominee is directly threatening Trump's supporters. When Republicans had control of government under George W. Bush, they were very happy to pass debt-financed spending programs.
"If Trump wants to get an infrastructure bill, it has to have some of these provisions", Huder says.
