House Democrats Propose $1T in Infrastructure Spending

House Democrats call for $1 trillion infrastructure spending spread over 10 years

Us Capitol 2

U.S. House of Representatives Democrats have proposed $1 trillion in government infrastructure spending over 10 years much more than the $200 billion President Trump is expected to offer in his infrastructure spending outline.

House Democatic Leader Nancy Pelosi criticized Trump's plan, calling it a "disappointment" for spending too little federal money and shifting the burden onto cities and states.

Democrats, however, did not propose a specific funding mechanism.

The Trump administration has previously rejected Democrats' call to spend $1 trillion as not fiscally responsible.
