Trump's Big Infrastructure Plan Has A Lot of Detail on Everything but How to Pay For It
Many lawmakers in both parties believe that President Trump has failed to provide a practical way to fund an infrastructure plan. The White House is suggesting that lawmakers decrease funding from other sources of the budget, including several existing infrastructure projects.
