    because any federal money would go to federal highways and or roads. if your subways and roads are in disrepair you need to complain to your state rep about it.

    the problem is getting a bill to his desk. congress is just not moving any bills anywhere. even though he has signed over 40 bills now.
    they are stalling on major legislation.

    That's just false. There is plenty of money that goes towards mass transportation. That's what the FTA does to the tune of $12 billion a year.

    unless it is allotted to the state to do so then it is 100% correct.

    Trump isn't doing much about anything.

    So far he's suggested that they would foster public-private partnerships, which won't work most of the time. E.g. it's unlikely private involvement in a new train tunnel under the Hudson will work; and lots of little projects (like small bridges that need to be replaced) have no real opportunity for private involvement.

    It's still possible Trump could spend on infrastructure, but he'll probably need a few Dems on board. I don't think they will care much for the private angle.

    You do know TDS is not a real diagnosis right? It's just a term made up to slam people who don't like Trump.

    Perhaps people don't know about it because people are too busy barking at all the dog whistles the left's MSM blows for them.

    Never once mentioned infrastructure? Really?

    Though, it would have helped, had the man on the chair had more experience in these things.
