Pete Buttigieg wants ‘intergenerational justice.’ What’s that? – NBC News

The Republicans are all up in arms about the freshman members of Congress. sure their views are different but of course they’re also younger and I have had a different life experience than somebody who’s been in Congress for the last 50 years.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg is talking long-term issues. Weighing these issues on how they are going to mature in the future. We seem to make our decisions based on a one-year budget. The best our government can do is a two-year farm Bill. It’s time we think a little bit further down the line then one or two years. China thinks in decades and has a plan mapped out for its economy and its people. Look I’m not talking about the dogmatic five-year plans of the Soviet Union.I’m talking about actual planning on how and why we want our economy to grow. Infrastructure should be our number one goal and this country. spending money on infrastructure does not balloon the debt. Spending money on infrastructure actually lowers the debt. The Republicans know that but they want us to be unhappy with the government so not fixing infrastructure is the best way of doing that.

Mayor Peter Buttigieg has some fresh ideas and he deserves to be on the stage when we have the debates in June.

Can Clinton Build a Bridge to Trump Supporters With Infrastructure Spending? – The Atlantic

My answer is a resounding yes.
Hillary Clinton is the only candidate that has a complete plan for bringing jobs back to this country. With her emphasis on infrastructure and clean energy jobs she gives the meat that Trump supporters are saying they’re not getting from their candidate. Her pro-small business policies will win over disenchanted Trump supporters. Yesterday was a pivotal day. Trump supporters were on camera saying they were starting to become unhappy with their candidates. Beyond her good policies she is presidential, something I cannot say for the rest of the field whether it be Democratic or Republican.
