Skip to comments.Democrats Demand End of Trump Tax Cuts — or Else No Infrastructure Funding
Posted on 04/30/2019 10:42:38 AM PDT by Red Badger
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Monday he would not support a national gas tax increase unless President Donald Trump is willing to repeal some of his administrations tax cuts.
Ahead of a meeting with Trump on Tuesday on a potential infrastructure deal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Schumer wrote a letter to Trump, saying that an infrastructure deal must be comprehensive and include clean energy and resiliency priorities.
Schumer and Pelosi said that the deal must go beyond transportation and into broadband, water, energy, schools, housing and other initiatives. We must also invest in resiliency and risk mitigation of our current infrastructure to deal with climate change.
The Democrat leaderships letter arises as Trump economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Monday that President Trump continues to mull whether to back a federal gas tax increase to pay for an infrastructure package.
Schumer reportedly will not back a gas tax increase unless Trump can undo the cost through repealing some of the GOP tax cuts.

Well then, F**K OFF, Schumer.
Gee I thought the Dems said that the tax cuts that Trump gave were a total scam, so how come they want to end it? President Trump should tell the commie left to go F themselves
DemonRat scum hates Americans.
How about, F*CK NO! And oh, by the way, F*CK NO!
So... let me get this straight... Schumer won’t support tax increases unless Trump undoes his tax cuts (aka, raises taxes)?
Sounds like a great reason to NOT remove the Trump tax cuts!
Go suck a bag of d*cks, Mr. Schumer.
What the hell is wrong with Democrats, anyway? Why are they so anti-American and anti-prosperity? It’s truly sickening.
Looks like Trump has schnookered them again.
Union guys salivating at the thought of those jobs will not be pleased.
Obviously an attempt to get Trump himself to poison his own well. RATs did manage to get Papa Bush to break his tax pledge losing his reelection. Trying to get Trump caught the in the same trap.
A gift that keeps on giving. Like Omar and Occasional-Cortex.
Then infrastructure deal is DOA!
What the dumbasses don’t realize is we don’t need the infrastructure spending anyways................
Ok, no deal.
You simply cannot deal with these scum sucking reptiles. All they care about is power and leftist ideology.
Not sure I'm completely clear on what you're trying to say.
So dumb. Doesn’t he want his Gateway built?
I suggest that DJT stop even listening to “Chuckie” Schumer, the LOUDMOUTH from NY.
Fwiw, when I was stationed in NY State (Albany), it was said that the MOST DANGEROUS PLACE in NY was to be between Schumer & a microphone/camera.
Kiss my lily white arse. You Rats cut a pile of spending and move it to infrastructure, which includes building the wall FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
