(NewsReady.com) – Earlier this week, President Donald Trump called for the next stimulus bill to take the shape of a massive infrastructure plan. He’s wanted to pass a plan to upgrade roads and bridges since his election. Although the $2 trillion idea seems like a tall order, the commander-in-chief knows exactly what he wants to do with the money.
With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill. It should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country! Phase 4

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is very enthusiastic about passing the next economic stimulus pack. Not everyone in Congress is on board with the idea, though.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said the speaker needs to “stand down on the notion that we’re going to go along with taking advantage of the crisis.” He doesn’t want Democrats to try and accomplish goals that are not directly related to addressing the pandemic.
McConnell isn’t solely opposed to Pelosi. Some of his GOP colleagues also don’t think they should consider other stimulus bills just yet. They want to wait until the three they’ve already passed play out. The lawmakers are attempting to be fiscally responsible, even though Trump has voiced his support for the infrastructure plan.
