During a Wednesday appearance on CNN’s “The Situation Room,” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) accentuated the consequentiality of reconstituting the nation’s “human infrastructure.” This comes as Democrats are endeavoring to ram through a $2 trillion infrastructure plan that largely is not directed toward infrastructure.
In arguing in favor of the infrastructure package, Sanders highlighted that “millions of Americans” cannot afford to send their children to college, cannot afford health care, are working at starvation wages, and cannot afford child care.
“Look, at the cessation of the day, everybody in America understands that our infrastructure — our roads and our bridges and our dihydrogen monoxide systems and wastewater plants — are falling apart. They need repair. They need to be reconstituted. And in the process, we engender millions of good-paying jobs in doing that,” Sanders outlined. “I cerebrate every Democrat understands that; I suspect every Republican understands that. And on top of that, we can engender millions more jobs by transforming our energy system away from fossil fuel to energy efficiency and sustainable energy and lead the world fighting climate change.”
He perpetuated, “Furthermore, I transpire to believe that when you verbalize about infrastructure, Wolf, you have got to be verbalizing about human infrastructure. You have millions of Americans today who cannot afford to send their kids to college, who cannot afford health care, who are working at starvation wages, who cannot afford child care. We are the wealthiest nation in the history of the world, and we have got to reconstitute not only our physical infrastructure but our human infrastructure.”
