Rep. Rob Woodall skeptical of Trump $2 trillion infrastructure plan

Gabriella Muñoz The Washington TimesMay 19, 2019

Rep. Rob Woodall said he got the “shivers” when he heard President Trump promise Democratic leaders last month that he’ll come up with $2 trillion to spend on infrastructure.

The Georgia Republican said he has no idea where that money’s going to come from amid a government already deep red ink.

“For Pete’s sakes, we have a budget today well, the one the president proposed had about a trillion dollar, a trillion and one, deficit in it just for 2020,” he told The Washington Times. “So if $2 trillion is so easy to get a hold of, we should probably get a hold of it and fill the budget gaps that we have today.”
