Goncalves: Infrastructure bill proves Washington, D.C. 'broken,' needs 'repair'

Here we go again … Chuck Schumer has introduced a $1 trillion infrastructure bill containing 2,700 pages.

In 2010, the Affordable Care Act was brought to the floor by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who famously said “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

I would like to know how many senators will read this 2,700-page bill before voting on it. Anyone want to bet?

What a stupid way to run a government! Washington, D.C., is broken and needs a lot of repair!
