Yesterday, President Trump announced his long-term plan to improve the nation’s crumbling infrastructure and boost the economy. Democrats including Senator Jon Tester, 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 January 2017, Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) Stated That He Would Work "With The President When We [Democrats] Can." "U.S. Senator Jon Tester released the following statement following President Donald Trump's inauguration: 'Today we witnessed the peaceful transition of power, a cornerstone of our democracy. On this day, it's my true hope that regardless of where we come from - Big Sandy, Bozeman, or Broadus - we can commit to working together for all Montanans. I will do my part by serving as an important check and balance on the new Administration, working with the President when we can and holding him accountable when we must.'"

Democrats Have Agreed That Investments In Infrastructure Boost The Economy, Create Jobs And Offer Tangible Benefits To The American People
In February 2013, Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) Claimed That Investing In Infrastructure Projects Like Clean Water, Roads, Bridges "Builds Stronger Rural Communities That Grow, Create Jobs, And Turn Challenges Into Opportunities." "'My message in Washington is this: smart investments in rural America are not wasteful spending,' Tester told the audience. 'Investing in clean water, in roads and bridges, builds stronger rural communities that grow, create jobs, and turn challenges into opportunities.'" (Press Release, "Tester Addresses Rural Water Systems Conference," Sen. Jon Tester , 2/21/13)
Will infrastructure be a repeat of tax reform, where Jon Tester puts 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?
