Major American business groups have lined up against President Joe Biden's $2.3 trillion infrastructure plan – even after many of them got behind his $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief effort.The opposition signals the headwinds the White House is up against promoting a package the Biden is designating as the next big push of his agenda, and one that he said Friday would create 19 million jobs.The U.S. Chamber of Commerce went after the plan as 'dangerously misguided.' 'Properly done, a major investment in infrastructure today is an investment in the future, and like a new home, should be paid for over time — say 30 years — by the users

You endorsed him, now you got him. And you have to live with him. So be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.

You Reap what you Sow! These same people voted for Biden/Harris. They KNEW he was not going to be in charge and that the most Radical people in this country would be calling the Shots, but THEY voted for him anyway. So, now it's just TDB if you suddenly figured out he doesn't give a whip what you like. Deal with it, the Rest of Us have to!

This is no different than the $1.9 Trillion dollar boondoggle where the Covid Stimulus was only 9% of the bill and Biden's democrat cities and friend got the rest. I assume the 19 million dollars sent to the Palestinians was a part of it. This $ 2.3 Trillion dollars should be called the Green Bill instead of an infrastructure bill. It will come at a cost to business as taxpayers will have less money because of the gigantic raise in taxes. It will put us into a depression. Remember that whatever the tax on corporations is ,they will only raise the price of their product and pass it on to consumers.

Not every business is as thrilled as the incredibly stupid Delta and Coca Cola with Biden's sharp business acumen. The honorable mentions in this group such as Bank of America, Disney, Hollywood, Ford, GM and all of the other BLM contributors are far too numerous to mention. The suffering of their bottom lines will be too serious to hide.

'Infrastructure' always a favorite word of the left for an excuse to take money and waste some of it on 'junk'. This is right up there with 'shovel ready' jobs. Remember that one? Our small town wanted to raise taxes with a vote so they used the words 'infrastructure' and schools it failed because they used thousands of dollars to paint power boxes around the city. I was appalled when I found out what was spent when some gangs could have spray painted them with spray paint for free if the city had let them. $2T on junk spending while stealing the rest while they are at it.

The Covid relief bill had only 9% that actually went to Covid relief. Now, the infrastructure bill only has 5% set aside for bridges, roads and trains. The token amounts are getting smaller.

Two trillion dollars...lost and wasted. Can you say kickbacks? Of all the crimes committed by our government, this might be the worst. Its a guarantee that the people paying for this would have better uses for that money than what the government is using it for. As for the US Chamber of Commerce, they get what they deserve. They sided with Communists, and now they are surprised that the Communists behave like Communists? Bunch of corrupt fools.

When you take a look at deep blue cities like Baltimore and Detroit you see microcosms for the rest of the country. The Left doesn't care about our standard of living, our grandchildren, our culture or our economy. It 's all about them, their money and their possessions. When their private jet has an engine fall off at 30,000 feet, their money won't buy them a ticket to heaven. As for Biden, he's nothing more than a zombie living in the White House.

Your house is falling apart. The roof leaks, the plumbing backs up, there's mice in the basement, and the front stairs have collapsed. So you present the family with your "Repair the House" budget, and ask everyone to give up their allowances, their entertainment expenses, the change in their piggy banks, and chip in to "repair the house." But one of the kids (the difficult one) takes a close look at your Repair the House budget and finds that 95% of it goes for a new pick-up truck, bass boat, and camping trailer for YOU. And you can't figure out why everyone is now mad at you and none of them believes a single word you say.

Roads and Bridges.... Don't we pay STATE taxes for such things? If it is interstate highway that is one thing, but to pay for State and MUNICIPAL projects Global Warming/Climate Change?? Nothing but a boondoggle Electric Cars?? They can't hold a charge to have a range of more than about 250 miles or so and KAPUT. That might work in the big cities, but not in the large states West of the Mississippi Just like Nobama, picking the winners and losers using public/private partnerships giving contracts only to 'woke' companies.... Green New Socialist DEAL??? Technology hasn't caught up to doing this crap-- just another waste of money-- How will we pay for all the welfare for the unskilled, uneducated, unvaccinated, illiterate INVASION that Barrack O'Biden has foisted upon a nation of citizens who will have THEIR jobs given to these ILLEGALS???

Many businesses need investors to invest in the company's growth. By bringing in millions of low paid workers, who do they think will have the money to invest company stocks? With taxes going up, whose going to be able to invest in the expansion of any company? It's a, I GOT MINE, SCREW YOU kind of thinking.

I’m so embarrassed to say this .....[NOT] but it gives me an incredible not-up-my-leg thrill to watch this fiasco metastasize and explode in the collective faces of all the corporate interests who voted to make our lives miserable. I’m enjoying the show hoping it gets far worse and more intolerable as time goes on. Just like uncontrollable brats, too may Americans don’t get it until their brains - and wallets - lie splattered on the ground. And even then they won’t admit they scr***ed everyone with their vote. GA Voters who still worship at the altar of Abrahams and her scam, deserve everything they get, every last job, every shutter business.

Nice scolding, #26. By conceding, Donald Trump would have admitted that Joe won the election and the entire world knows that DID NOT happen, even though the left goes nutzoid when somebody says it. When Windbag Wallace asked Trump before the election if he would concede that was a hint to me that the democrats had a contingency plan to remove him from the White House by force. With every government agency corrupted, including the armed sections of the FBI, DHS and the IRS, that would not have been bloodless. Maybe it's better that the whole country is getting a taste of just how incompetent and evil the democrats are.

I am hoping this backlash is part of the lemonade being made out of the lemons that were fraudulently foisted upon the American people last November. Trump is sitting back watching the DS expose itself to the public for its corruption and incompetence hoping that WTP will soon wake up to what has been happening and will take action. We will not break free until we ALL get off our duffs and force our representatives to do the right things. We became sheeple and forgot who is supposed to be boss. Trump never did. The DS didn't either, but they ran roughshod over us and took power in our complacency and fear.

The White House's decision to push twin sprawling infrastructure packages is complicating its pathway to passage and the Biden administration's messaging strategy. President Joe Biden unveiled his monster $2.25 trillion "American Jobs Plan" in Pittsburgh Wednesday, along with a corporate tax hike framework as administration officials said another massive spending bill would soon follow.But the White House's decision to divide the packages, bundled together as part of the "Build Back Better" infrastructure platform on which Biden campaigned, so far is confusing lawmakers, lobbyists, and experts alike. The president's generous "infrastructure" definition not only means he has plenty of what Republicans see as poison pill spending

Until very recently, it would have been hard to imagine anything more iconic of American life than Coca Cola and baseball. Today both remind me of Benito Mussolini’s corporatist – aka, fascist -- game of merging of state and corporate power.

MINNEAPOLIS — Ten months after his death, George Floyd's face looks out across a city still raw from his death. The intersection where he died under the knee of a police officer. The neighborhood burned and looted over the following days. The fortified courthouse where that former police officer is on trial for murder charges in Floyd's death. From the razor wire ringing the courthouse to a smattering of activists occupying the intersection where Derek Chauvin and three officers held Floyd to the ground, this city is still reckoning with the consequences of Floyd's death.
