  • No sticky notes? Vice president Harris? Yooo sleepy Joe is now awoke joey boii



  • Just look at the "California high-speed rail" and see how well this Infrastructure Bill will go.🙄 Estimated 4.1 billion more.🤮 Good luck with that. 🤦🏽‍♂️

  • Stop with the historical left out you taking care of them more than you ever have taken care of a white family in America you can go into any Social Service office and you might see two American 249 non Americans

  • 🤑👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎👎

  • And that nasty shadow is back lol what is wrong with her? Acts like a stalker lol

  • Inaction is preferred to stupid action. Democrats and Biden are incapable of creating a plan without wasting money or lining pockets of their friends and themselves. Let him prove he can administer a $10MM plan before he tries on his big boy pants.

  • more than half of it will end up in Wall Street as always

  • Good plan. But why some Politicians oppose tax increase on Corporates?? Do they take bribes from corporates to support them?? Why there are tax loopholes in the first place? Renewable energy and it's storage technology is the it's a good investment plan I would say.

  • This sounds like a good bill that will fix roads , schools , old pipes even supplement the elderly and much more but I'm sure there is a price.

    • Did you know they are saying it’s just 10% of the bill. The rest is for payoffs,museums the arts etc.

  • "The eyes of history are on this appointment." - Buttigeig 1964 Japan's first bullet trains were put in service and the the first Beatles album was released. 1998 China started the construction of 36,000km of high speed railways and high speed trains. 2021 US still has NO high speed railway and NO high speed trains.

    • @Tanweer Alam The problem is we have no money.

    • The Los Angeles to San Francisco HSR like has a current expected costs that is 1/6 of the entire transportation budget for this country. That’s $256 million/mile Buttigeig doesn’t know wtf he’s talking about. The allocation would have to increase 10 fold for them to make any serious progress on high speed rail.

    • Exactly...Pan American HSR doesn't surprises me. US has lot of money...if you need technology you can Collaborate with Japan...your ally. So what's the problem? Political will power?

  • Debate is welcome???? Cancel Culture doesn't allow debate. Why do Democrat Cities get huge bailouts???? Why is Big Tech allowed to control elections???? Why is the media always hiding the truth??

    • @Speed Racer So why did NY get the majority of said help during the pandemic?

    • Why did red states get help during the pandemic like Florida when Trump was in office . Scewed up aint it

  • Just reveal overall category structure of varies infrastructure Action whatever that comes to primary in a quarter basis to ease the congestion of commitment on all kind of resources that require to focus at one task

  • Not my president

  • Close the border ! Inaction is simply not an option !

  • Less than 10% of this money will go to crumbling infrastructure like roads, bridges and electric grid. The remaining 90% will go to vaguely defined things like human infrastructure to combat systemic racism, subsidizing the electric vehicle manufacturers and market with grant money, and something called the New Deal Climate Conservation Corps. Doesn't sound like an infrastructure bill, more like the green new deal but that's not how its being sold to the American people. Our country is trying to recover from a global pandemic, honestly when has massive government spending ever stimulated economic growth sufficient to get of the recession that's coming.

  • Jose Biden, build the wall!

  • Dam right inaction is not a option.. knuckle down and get sh*t done!!

  • Big talk from the big guy.

  • your changing everything not keep things the same

  • Wow!! #demorats are finally admitting it... #TRUMP was the best President ever! His business sense, his executive orders, his foreign policies were spot on!!

    • No, he is the worst republican since Herbert Hoover. Also the economy was improving during the last few months of Obamas presidency.

  • howdy doody is back but no instructions included

  • if idiots had brains biden would be at the head of the class.....😳


  • People are going to have to make a decision whether they want to live in a nation or have world communist government.

    • @Speed Racer i have a job. Been here 23 years now. I was saying,everybody is hiring. The jobs are out there,but people don't want some of them due to pride and also because unemployment benefits are still paying them to stay home. As a matter of fact,where I'm at,they just implemented a referral program that will pay any of us current employees $500 if we get someone a job and they work for atleast 12 consecutive months. That's how desperate employers are becoming now.

    • @tom kliber while your waiting try a job picking up medical boxes they start good and you get to take home a vehicle. Or drive a bus for the handicap .

    • @Speed Racer the youth,nor anyone else sitting at home,want the jobs. They are out here. I work in an industrial area in my town. Every single business in this mile long distance, is hiring. Including where I work( throughout the whole pandemic). We aren't even getting applications here.

    • @Solstice of Snow true but infrastructure wise its good

    • @Speed Racer I would not count on it. Jobs are created by the community, not so much by the government.

  • I'm not right, left, up nor down wing because I don't believe in all this political ping pong and the all the shamimg tactics involved used to steer people ... And I STILL say, Boycott any and all business that require a "Vaccine Passport" even if you do get vaccinated .. Useless you wanna help split society even more .... Airlines can easily have vaccinated and non-vaccinated flights they just don't want to ... And they shouldn't be getting anymore (payoffs) I mean bailouts for running of their own customers .... either


    • You do know, Build Back Better is a NWO slogan

  • Joe say the words climate change .

  • He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold but climeth up some other way the same is a thief and a robber

  • Job Infastructure= no Vaxx, no job

  • No such thing as Middle class anymore. You are killing us.

  • I am totally open to debate from the Republicans, but as I don't need their votes I won't listen to a thing they say and just push my agenda. As I let them talk(and then ignored them) I will state that all my agenda is bipartisan. Joe you are a joke and a poor politician who has been bought by China who in case you don't know Joe is our opposition. Keep trolling your lies though!


  • Why doesnt America have more ghost cities connected by ghost roads? INACTION IS NOT AN OPTION


  • Dude is just reading from a que card! He has no thought of his own! He cannot even pronounce the words!!!

    • Impeach The old Fart !

    • you try giving a public speech without reading from notes or a teleprompter. Don't be naive thinking Trump never used either one.

    • @Stephanie Drake and Obama, Clinton, Bush, Bush Jr. Reagan. Your point Sally?

    • Trump read from note cards, too.

  • I know stories about poop that get more likes!!

    • Oh wait this is poop.

  • Democrats mouths are watering they smell pork

    • Why? There was nothing for the police in there, was there?


    • Oh yeah. President Joe Biden. Your favorite guy

  • When you are only using ten percent of this bill for infrastructure it means you are deceiving people.

  • push push push, total BS

    • hi cuz@BC Rat Bikes

    • Hmm. That sounds like you and your cousin

  • Democrats quotes : Republicans are doing bad things Republicans quotes : Democrats are doing stupid changes

  • Lmaoo.. When Trump wanted to address infrastructure... the Dems were against it. They called him a racist, KKK, and a white supremacist. I hope the Republicans shut it down like the Dems did. Screw the Dems.

  • A president who actually talks about the FUTURE and our countries well being, instead of one who blames others and is mired is past failures.

    • @Adam Marks Alcoa would like to thank you for singlehandedly putting most of their kids through college.

    • @Adam Marks Proof, or stfu

    • @BC Rat Bikes Biden committed TREASON...your point is?

    • @Stephanie Drake We can read the bill. Amtrak is .5% of the bill, and interstate highways can't be much more.

    • @Stephanie Drake president is supposed to control state issues?

  • If Kirby swallowed Biden, he would get a face mask.

  • Ever since I started paying attention to politics, I have concluded that inaction is the best action of Congress. The only thing more certain than death is taxation by Congress.

  • I see the comment bots are wary today. ISchats y’all gone keep removing dislikes?

    • @Jim River Oh yes, the liberal story of saying something is debunked, just because you say so. Too bad it is on record, and it is also on record that the Biden admin asked youtube to throttle back dislikes. Looks like the left wing main stream state media has successfully brain washed you. Typically does not take much to brain wash the brain dead.

    • @Jim River The Biden administration made specific requests to youtube to do just that. So the Biden administration is that childish.

    • @Oblivion I do not need to watch it I checked the channel and most of the crap they put up has been debunked. Not a real source of info

    • @Jim River that’s weird it’s not letting me cause I keep tryna give ya the link but it keeps deleting my comment but look up the video I told you tho, cause it’s not hard to search videos on ISchats. Unless you’re not wanting to watch it on purpose.

    • @Oblivion

  • It seems to be the same case of crime as President Kim Young-sam, a South korean criminal, and Kim Hyun-cheol, his son. It is the same crime as Kim Young-sam and Kim Hyun-cheol of South korea, who committed evil crimes of abuse of authority by using the 'National Intelligence Service' of South korea. Investigate how President Biden and his son of the United States are using the CIA and FBI. 한국의 범죄자인 김영삼 대통령과 그의 아들인 김현철과 똑 같은 범죄의 케이스인 것 같다. 한국의 국정원을 이용을 하여서 직권남용의 악한 범행을 저지른 한국의 김영삼과 김현철과 같은 범행이다. 미국의 바이든 대통령과 그의 아들이 CIA와 FBI를 어떻게 이용을 하고 있는지 집중 조사를 하여라. Of course, do a public investigation and put him in jail. This case is about the rise and fall of the United States. Impeach the president, the father of the criminal. naturally 물론 공개 조사를하고 그를 감옥에 가두십시오. 이 사건은 미국의 흥망이 결정이 나는 일입니다. 범죄자의 아버지인 대통령도 탄핵을 하십시요. 당연히

    • Wow you type good Chinese yourself .

    • Investigate how you missed the Brain Train

    • You conspiracy nuts crack me up! 🤣

    • Keep you baseless crap in your own country.

  • Thank God we have a president again instead of a pompous, self important blowhard.

  • ❌👽🏹The White HOUSE!!! Criminal 🇺🇸GARBAGE!!!!! President Mr Joe Biden 🇨🇳TRUMP!!! Destroying infrastructure using hedge fund 🇷🇺SYSTEM!!!!! 🇦🇺Sanction🗽💥🏢✈️🏢🛫Authority!!!

  • We absolutely cannot afford it. Fix the bridges and roads but we seriously do not need train service from coast to coast as an example. Pass a very limited plan. Our banks are going to need another bail-out soon due to poor practices. The reason he is defending it is that even some Democrats are revolting against the price tag.

    • There is more critically significant infrastructure beyond just roads and bridges.

    • @Virginia Ganskie: Have a good one!

    • @John Watt I leave you by blocking you!

    • @Virginia Ganskie: Our planet. Love it or leave it.

    • @John Watt OMG, you don't even live here? Bye, bye, now!

  • We should build more prisons and coal plants. INACTION IS NOT AN OPTION.


    • @Duy Duhh Why would we want more prisons? Coal plants have gone the way of the dinosaur.

    • @Jim River infrastructure! INACTION IS NOT AN OPTION

    • What for?

  • "Bad action is worse than no action" -Person smarter than Biden's handlers

    • @Duy Duhh "I was thinking" Lol!!! Good one

    • @John Watt nope, I was thinking about logical fallacies. Funny you brought a second one up.

    • You must be thinking about what Republicans in Florida are doing with the water catastrophe.

  • Your a liar and a cheat ! Sit down and shut up puppet

    • Past President Trump is a liar and a cheat. President Biden is working all Americans.

  • "He sounds just like trump" said no one, ever.

    • Politico said it today in an article about corporate responses to his bill.

  • We need to stop looking at the past but to the future.

    • @ISchats Censors that payroll tax Trump wanted to pass would cut off social security to millions of seniors by 2023 . His famous tax cut gave the 1%, no tax and got them millions in return while midclass and the poor got nothing. This bill would benefit the nation while higher taxes for the rich .

    • @ISchats Censors Did you care about the debt, when the last guy jacked it higher than it's ever been?

    • @Charles Davis WTF? Can you try that again in English?

    • Nope. We need to look at our national debt. Pay it back.

    • @Charles Davis: Do you really think this is worth publishing?
