NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) President Donald Trump is expected to unveil his massive infrastructure bill on Monday, and the plan that once seemed to be a rare issue that both sides could agree on is now facing controversy.

As WCBS 880s Ethan Harp reported, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-New York) addressed the infrastructure plan at Grand Central Terminal Sunday. He was once on board with the plan, but is now concerned with what it could really look like.

Under Trump's budget, the $200 billion in federal funding will be taken from other programs that are cut or eliminated,

I fail to see the problem here.

"We’ve shortchanged our highways, our water, our sewer, our broadband by far too much over the last seven, eight years.”

No Chuck, you and your ilk have wasted the money on libtard projects like bike trails and greenie projects.

Now, STFU and let the adults try to fix your mess.

Let's do the math - Trump gave Chucky 50B (100 Billion) for two years to get the defense hike.

Now he wants 200 Billion in cuts !!!!

I love it !!!

Shmuckie Chuckie just hates President Trump having a victory. So he must be against President Trump’s infrastructure bill. If this bill was from President Obama or from President Hillary Clinton, he would be praising it to no end.

I think Trump just set up ANOTHER fight in the RAT party - just like he did on DACA.

This time, municipalities wanting infrastructure funding, will be pushing Chucky to find cuts to welfare...

Trump is a genius !!!

NYS’s sewer system is the other 49’s responsibility? Well, gee, Chuckie, maybe if NYS wasn’t spending so much on welfare, pensions, and illegals we could dang well pay for our own bloody infrastructure.

Now that Trump is poised for another victory Schumer sudd y opposes infrastructure spending. Apparently infrastructure is not the priority he claimed after all.

The arrogance of Schumer is insufferable. In a very just world he would be working at a diner, getting yelled at because the soup was cold.

For the record, I have great respect for any sincere work that people do, and definitely for hardworking waitstaff. Too many of them have to put up with abusive customers. I use this example because I believe people like Schumer talk a good game about caring for ‘the little guy/girl/person’, but in reality they believe themselves above the rest of society.

I am still curious about what happened to the billion(s) dollar Stimulus appropriation earmarked for infrastructure in Obama’s first years. Remember he “shovel ready projects.”

Infrastructure is vital to any country’s well being. In the most populous areas of the USA, it has been steadily falling into the Shit Hole Category. Every legal American citizen should be thanking whatever deity floats his boat that Trump is in charge and check out what Trump owns now beneficially. Every property is at the top of its class. He wants to try to do the same for the country. Now get on your knees and kiss his ass.
