Chuck Schumer and Governor Cuomo want to do something about New York’s crumbling infrastructure. They want you and me to pay for it. The price tag, just for the Hudson Tunnel alone is estimated at $29 Billion. (Interesting number)
Schumer is a skunk. He’s not a negotiator, he’s a game player. He could make an infrastructure deal with the president that would satisfy both…but he won’t. His highest priority is denying the President a win.
The bipartisan spending on border security that he supported failed to have the desired effect in terms of security and border control but that’s good enough for him. The safety of New Yorkers is important now (for votes) but the safety of the American people, in particular those living along the southern border is not worth his time.
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) has an idea which he has shared with the President: Tie his $25 Billion for the wall to Chucky’s infrastructure bill. Whatever budget Nancy and Chucky come up with, Schumer won’t get what he wants for infrastructure without giving Trump the wall.
The Conservative/Libertarian in me is against federal government involvement in state issues. But we left the wisdom of the founders behind long ago and it may be a long time, if ever, before it emerges once again in our nation, mores the pity. So if Mr. Schumer insists on playing games instead of making a deal I’m all in for his capitulation or defeat
