Dear Tammy Baldwin: 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 Tammy Baldwin, 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 July 2015, Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) Stated She Was "Committed" To Finding A Long-Term Legislative Solution For Wisconsin Infrastructure And Ending The Cycle Of "Short-Term Measures." "'Putting people to work rebuilding our roads, bridges and railways creates jobs and boosts our Wisconsin economy,' said Senator Baldwin. 'Today's vote is an important step to ensure that work will continue over the coming months. However, in order for us to create an economy built to last, Congress needs to make a long-term investment in a 21st century American infrastructure that provides businesses with the quality transportation system they need to move their goods to market. I am committed to ending this six year cycle of short-term measures and finally give Wisconsin businesses and residents the confidence they deserve knowing our roads, bridges and other infrastructure will stand to benefit in the long-term.'" (Press Release, "U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Statement On Federal Highway Funding," Sen. Tammy Baldwin , 7/30/15)

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

In May 2014, Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) Claimed That Rebuilding Wisconsin's Infrastructure Would "Put People To Work And Create Jobs." "'In order for us to grow the economy and create jobs we need to make sure we build a 21st century Wisconsin infrastructure that includes renewing our commitment to our ports, locks and dams,' said Baldwin. 'Rebuilding our water infrastructure will not only put people to work and create jobs, it will provide businesses with the quality infrastructure they need to move their goods to market.'" (Press Release, "U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin Supports Investments In Wisconsin's Water Infrastructure," Sen. Tammy Baldwin , 5/22/14)

Will infrastructure be a repeat of tax reform, where Tammy Baldwin 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?
