Check Kiting Today

Robbing Peter to Pay Paul.

Prznint Stupid is supposed to finally reveal his $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan, which even the rest of the Fourth Reich doesn’t think will pass, and a $4 trillion budget that is described as  “Magical Thinking.”

Meanwhile, Republicans see their only mission for this year as promoting the tax cut Billions for Billionaires bill that they passed last year. So, you know, it’s a dead parrot:

Comrade Stupid is going to present the plan as a $1.5T Amero infrastructure overhaul, that is neither $1.5T nor an overhaul. Our federal government is going to pony-up only about $200 billion, and Comrade Stupid expects states and localities to come up with the rest.

As far as I can tell from news reports, there’s a lot o smoke and mirrors:

A) a lot of the money will be claimed for projects that states and cities already intended to build, and 2) the administration plans to allow some existing taxes to count towards states’ and cities’ contributions. In other words, there’s no new money coming.

We predict that the gubmint will move some money already earmarked for infrastructure projects around in order to create the $200B Ameros in the kitty.

What Comrade Stupid is doing essentially check kiting, you know, like how he keeps the Trump Companies floating.

    For a Party based on “Fiscal Conservatism”, they have fallen off of a ‘tall’ building. Tax Cuts for all the Big Guys I can see, but now they want to throw money at stuff like it doesn’t matter where it comes from? If California had the money to fix all our roads and bridges I really figure we would have done that by now! A little kickback from the Feds isn’t the issue here. Where in ‘God’s Green Earth’ is this money for repairs going to come from?
    We the People, can see on a daily basis where repairs are needed but “charging it to my Grandkids” isn’t taking care of anything.
    Spend, Spend, and Spend, like there is no tomorrow, or at least “till some responsable Democrats” get into power again.
    They remind me of my kids in Candy Store, dreaming huge but only a buck to spend.

    I remember once, way back when we wore onions on our belts Ahhhnold did an big photo-op and blustery speech about infrastructure in front of a crew filling in potholes.

    Reportedly there was one problem.

    The crew first dug the potholes in the street to fill while the cameras were rolling.

    Reportedly.

      You’d think they could have found a few “real” potholes, but I suppose the real ones wouldn’t have been so photogenically in one area. “Our Tax Dollars at Work”?

    A few years ago Paul Ryan and his cohorts warned that spending was going to turn us into Greece.

    Are we there yet?

    Tanks will roll just fine over potholed roads whether in parade to Dear Leader’s delight or crushing protesters, immigrants and the dwindling members of our ‘free press’.
