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

Ellie Hockenbury - February 12, 2018

Today, President Trump announced his long-term plan to improve the nation’s crumbling infrastructure and boost the economy. Democrats, including Senator Sherrod Brown, 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 2018, Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) Stated That Due To The Condition Of Bridges In Ohio, He Was "Ready To Work With The President to Make This Investment A Top Priority." "'This report is the latest example of why Ohioans so badly need updated bridges to get them to and from work, school and the doctor,' said Brown. 'I hope President Trump will lay out a plan to rebuild the nation's bridges, and invest in our entire infrastructure system, from roads to affordable housing to schools. Infrastructure investment will create jobs and grow the U.S. economy. I'm ready to work with the President to make this investment a top priority, but it needs to be new investment, not a plan that steals money from current programs that help our towns and cities.'" (Press Release, "Latest Bridge Analysis Underscores Need For Brown's Legislation To Update, Repair Ohio Bridges," Sen. Sherrod Brown , 1/29/18)

Democrats Have Agreed That Investments In Infrastructure Boost The Economy, Create Jobs And Offer Tangible Benefits To The American People

In January 2018, Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) Claimed That Rebuilding Bridges Would "Create New Jobs And Make The Country More Competitive." "'Rebuilding bridges across the U.S. will create new jobs and make the country more competitive,' said Brown." (Press Release, "Brown, Wyden, Whitehouse Unveil Bill to Repair, Replace Bridges across America, Promote American Jobs," Sen. Sherrod Brown , 1/4/18)

Will infrastructure be a repeat of tax reform, where Sherrod Brown 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?
