White House releases infrastructure proposal

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called the proposal a "brutal collection of broken promises and staggering cuts". "And that way it gets done on time, on budget".

The President said he would back up that project.

Just signed Bill. Our Military will now be stronger than ever before.

Mulvaney, a former lawmaker and long-time opponent of federal debt, has acknowledged he likely would not have supported the bill were he still in Congress.

The White House said so far, it hasn't made any final decisions.

"These are spending caps", Mulvaney said.

"According to Trump, "'We can not continue to let people come into our country and rob us blind and charge us tremendous tariffs and taxes and we charge them nothing", Trump has been keen on this tax reform ever since his campaign, he even mentioned late 2016 that a couple of countries are taking advantage of the United States' which he visited in the previous meeting.

"There's a major commitment from us here to increase the flow of generics", said Mulvaney.

President Donald Trump is calling for a 25-cent hike to the federal gas tax in order to pay for the White House infrastructure plan, according to multiple reports.

"As of a couple of months ago, we have spent $7 trillion in the Middle East".

"We all want better infrastructure", Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao told reporters on Tuesday.

That hike is expected to result in $149 million in new money this year to fix the state's crumbling roads and bridges, Hall said last week. "What a mistake", said Trump.

The presidential budget is important only in that it signals what the president thinks the nation's priorities should be. The President will lobby hard for the infrastructure proposal because the success of his 2020 run may depend on it.

Some in Congress have said they are open to the idea of increasing the gasoline tax but that Trump would need to provide cover to win approval for the politically risky move.

For the majority of projects, federal funds are to be used to pay for a maximum of 20% of the cost, a big reversal from the current policy in which taxpayer money can account for as much as 80% of highway repairs.
