The $1,200,000,000,000 Total budget that was recently approved had the following listed:
 
$110,000,000,000 was for bridges and roads
$73,000,000,000 was for power infrastructure (By comparison, we left the Taliban with $85,000,000,000 worth of equipment)
$66,000,000,000 was for passenger and freight rail
$65,500,000,000 was for expanding broadband access
$48,500,000,000 was for public transit
$15,000,000,000 was for electric vehicle infrastructure and buses
$378,000,000,000 is the Grand total of the above.
 
What are they using the remaining $822,000,000,000 for?

Freebies. Thank yous for constituents.  Pay offs for bought votes.

Well, if they're only spending 32% on We The People related things... that means that 69% are payoffs and all the other things you mentioned.

But they're supposed to be pro green new deal... however they only spend 1% on electric vehicle infrastructure and buses... how green they ARE NOT!

I say we spend 68% of the 69% on electric vehicle infrastructure and buses and give 1% to the Freebies. Thank yous for constituents.  Pay offs for bought votes, etc.

They should be more than happy to oblige or back down on their green new deal!!!
 
All I can see is increased inflation with no end in sight that will hurt Republicans, Democrats and Independents!

That's not the total budget, it's the total "infrastructure" bill.

You are correct... the recently passed $1.2 Trillion infrastructure bill.

But the amount for actual infrastructure is quite small!

They love the word infrastructure.  I never quite knew what it meant when they said it.  I know what I think…

Infrastructure to the Democrats is any and everything they can think of... except our border wall!

All kinds of "pork", extra that shouldn't have been included.

Pork has both meat and fat... this is just too much fat with almost no meat on it and never should have been passed.
