Dear Claire: Don’t Be A Pothole On The Bridge To Infrastructure Solutions

Christiana Purves - February 13, 2018

Yesterday, President Trump announced his long-term plan to improve the nation’s crumbling infrastructure and boost the economy. Democrats, including Senator Claire McCaskill, have previously stated their willingness to work with President Trump to rebuild American infrastructure:

Democrats Have Claimed They Are "Ready And Willing" To Work With President Trump To Rebuild America

In February 2017, Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) Stated That She "Stand[s] Ready And Willing to Work With Him [The President]" To Rebuild The Country's Infrastructure. "'Our roads and bridges are crumbling and it's time we fix them,' said McCaskill. 'President Trump was crystal clear in his campaign that rebuilding our country's infrastructure was a top priority, and I stand ready and willing to work with him to achieve that goal. And I hope to see the same kind of commitment from Governor Greitens and leaders in Jefferson City.'" (Press Release, "Missouri Bridges Among Most Deficient In Nation-Mccaskill Urges Action," Sen. Claire McCaskill , 2/17/17)

Democrats Have Repeatedly Touted The Idea Of Passing A Long-Term Bill That Addresses America's Crumbling Infrastructure

In December 2015, Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) Claimed That She "Look[ed] Forward To Working With [Her] Colleagues On Both Sides Of The Aisle" To Get A Long-Term Agreement On Highway Funding. "'It's hard to get anything done in Washington these days, which is why these wins for Missouri are all the more important,' said McCaskill, a former Missouri State Auditor and former Chairman of the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection. 'We've scored victories today for Missouri jobs, businesses, and consumers-folks I'll never stop fighting for-and for our country's energy future, and I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to get this long-term bill across the finish line.'" (Press Release, "McCaskill Scores Legislative Hat-Trick In Highway Bill," Sen. Claire McCaskill , 12/1/15)

Will infrastructure be a repeat of tax reform, where Claire McCaskill puts her partisan, obstructionist games above providing real improvements to the American economy? Or will she finally work with President Trump and Congressional Republicans to help all Americans?
