Obama loved to spend cash. The problem? It was your cash!
Democrats’ only plan for government is to spend, spend, spend. That results in higher taxes, hurting jobs and businesses.
With Donald Trump in the White House, all that is changing. He’s bringing the federal government under control. He’s already saved taxpayers billions in slashed regulations, smaller government, and tax cuts.
Now we are learning he just ended a very bad deal. A deal where two liberal states tried to screw the country.
From Conservative Tribune:
While he was in office, former President Barack Obama worked out a $13 billion rail tunnel for two deep-blue Democrat states in which U.S. taxpayers would be paying for half of the bill. Luckily for the American people, President Donald Trump is in office now to put a stop to this overpriced project.
According to Fox News, the plan was supposed to renovate Amtrak tunnels and tracks between New York state and New Jersey that have fallen into disrepair…
However, the issue isn’t whether the repairs should be made. The issue is with who will pay for them.
Under the original plan, the costs would be split up three ways between New York state, New Jersey, and the federal government…
According to Fox, the two states have started to back out of their end of the deal. They now want to make up their payments using loans from the federal government. In other words, pay nothing at all for themselves up front, while the rest of the country picks up the tab for improvements to a transportation system overwhelmingly used by residents of New York, New Jersey and other Northeastern states.
Typical strong-arm tactics from states known for their mafia ties. Not a huge surprise. Liberals in New York and New Jersey behave like mobsters. They tax residents into oblivion. Where that money goes? Not to needed projects, obviously.
Users online raise a good question. Why should people outside of the Northeast flip their bill?
Why should taxpayers in South Dakota or South Carolina have to chip in for a rail tunnel for Jersey commuters who work in New York? Pay for the damn project out of the fare box or forget it. https://t.co/KkUWq4iwzI

The original deal wasn’t terrible. Trump promised to rebuild infrastructure, after all. But clearly the crooks in NJ and NY wanted to put the entire burden on the federal government. They refused to spend any state money. Hey, that money has to be used to pay off corrupt officials and bribe businesses, right!?
It’s only fair that these states invest in their own infrastructure. Yet under Obama, liberals thought they could get away with murder. Not anymore. Trump will rebuild America’s infrastructure. But it’s going to be fair. Every state will pay their share. Period.
