Daily morning cartoon / meme roundup: The nation needs serious infrastructure repair to even stay this far behind.

The US has let the infrastructure of the country crumble and dwindle for generations while other countries have invested in all aspects of their countries needs.   They are first world nations.   The US has a third world situation where to move goods and people is adding time, costs, and unavailability to the situation.    This infrastructure bill provides jobs also, and as we know when people have money they spend, when the people spend the economy grows and strengthens.    Every part of the bill is needed so don’t complain about the broadband funding.   Think of it corporations have refused to set up the needed equipment and lines to run broadband in a large part of the country despite massive tax cuts and give backs they claimed they needed to do so.  Yet having internet access is vital to all aspects of the society and economy.     The real reason this is fought so hard on the right by Republicans is the wealthy hate the idea they have to pay for some of the very things that make them great wealth.   They are having less than half of the huge tax cut they got in 2017 taken away to pay for this infrastructure they need also.  Instead they want the entire costs paid for by the people with the least ability to pay for it.     So why are the right wing TV hosts for this.   Remember most of them are wealthy or supported by the wealthy.  Same reason for elected Republicans in government.   Remember the Wealthy Republican motto.   Government must always serve the wants and needs of the wealthy upper class and large corporations, but must never work for the lower class lower income people who must be kept in a desperate survival struggle  so they will be grateful for any crumbs the wealthy let them have.     Hugs

  • Scottie, it has always puzzled me, even when I was a Republican, why the party tended to be so adamant against repairing infrastructure. Things deteriorate and must be maintained. If this does not pass in some form, the next train or highway bridge that collapses will cause some of the same naysayers to ask “how could you let that happen?” When the US did not get the Olympics for Chicago, the reason cited was poor infrastructure. That was about ten years ago. Keith

    • Hello Keith. Happy Easter to you. Hope you are having a grand meal. I agree with you on the infrastructure. But I think it comes down to what I mentioned in the title. The Republicans no longer care about making the country work for anyone but the upper class. Nothing else matters. They also depend on the voters being so caught up in the latest culture war scandal the right is drumming up that the voters will forget the harm the Republicans in office allowed to happen. Even today on the Sunday news shows I watched Senator Roy Blunt from Missouri who wants the infrastructure bill cut to a third, different funding that doesn’t hurt beloved job creators ( yes he kept saying wealthy job creators ) and failed to mention how some of his fellow Republicans are already taking credit for some of the fixes to stuff in their districts / states. I hate the gaslighting, I hate the lies, and mostly I hate how openly the Republicans now operate. OT by my gods did you see the over-the-top theater of Ted Cruz and his fellow Republicans at the border in a gun boat? To fend off minor children who are asking to surrender anyway? Hugs
