Yesterday, President Trump announced his long-term plan to improve the nation’s crumbling infrastructure and boost the economy. Democrats including Senator Bob Casey, have previously stated their willingness to work with President Trump to rebuild American infrastructure:
Democrats Have Repeatedly Touted The Idea Of Passing A Long-Term Bill That Addresses America's Crumbling Infrastructure
In June 2015, Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) Claimed That A Long Term Transportation Bill Would "Create Jobs And Make Critical Safety Upgrades That in Some Cases Are Overdue." "'A long term transportation bill will give communities the certainty they need to invest and plan substantial infrastructure projects,' Senator Casey said. 'Investing in our nation's roads and bridges will create jobs and make critical safety upgrades that in some cases are long overdue.'" (Press Release, "Casey, Lehigh Valley Leaders Push For Long Term Transportation Bill That Will Upgrade Region's Roads And Bridges," Sen. Bob Casey , 6/8/15)
Democrats Have Agreed That Investments In Infrastructure Boost The Economy, Create Jobs And Offer Tangible Benefits To The American People
In May 2014, Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) Claimed Investments In Bridges Was A Bipartisan Issue And That The Parties "Should Come Together" Because "It's A Commonsense Step To Improve Infrastructure And Create Jobs." "'Fixing structurally deficient bridges in Harrisburg and throughout South Central Pennsylvania will Increase safety and provide a boost to the economy,' Senator Casey said. 'Congress has an opportunity in the upcoming transportation bill to make a significant commitment to bridge repair. This is an issue that Democrats and Republicans should come together on because it's a commonsense step to improve infrastructure and create jobs.'" (Press Release, "Casey Pushes For Additional Funds For Bridge Repair In Upcoming Transportation Bill," Sen. Bob Casey , 5/12/14)
Will infrastructure be a repeat of tax reform, where Bob Casey put his partisan, obstructionist games above providing real improvements to the American economy? Or will he finally work with President Trump and Congressional Republicans to help all Americans?
