Drucker: Republicans Do Not Like To Spend the Kind of Money to Fund the Infrastructure Bill the President Wants
DRUCKER: "I think the President would like to take this tax reform victory and roll it into momentum for infrastructure. The problem he will run into is that Republicans do not like to spend the kind of money it takes to fund the kind of infrastructure bill the President would like to enact, especially after they’ve had to play a lot of accounting games with a tax overhaul bill. They think the tax overhaul bill will end up working out just fine, but it’s still a lot of games to play with the numbers. And then if they’re going to get help from Democrats in the Senate, which they would need, because it’s a spending bill, Democrats are going to demand all sorts of things they will never get."
