8. They say that because THAT'S HOW THEY HANDLE MONEY. They're takers, not do'ers.

The Republican Party wouldn't know how to run a two-car funeral, and so Democratically run government will have to run their state projects, and probably oversee local projects, too.

When the American Jobs Plan passes, Democrats can say, "Thanks for your votes; we'll take it from here."

Democratic arguments:

1. These are a list of grade D projects, not 'pet' projects;

2. Transparency is built into Democratic governance, or the public wouldn't know squat about how this vaccine rollout would go;

3. Everything's "expensive" for austerity autocrats who don't want to spend a dime on clean energy or environmental cleanup projects;

4. Ending 'right to work' is ending war on unions -- tough shit, snowflakes;

5. Tax hikes are hikes that corporations and billionaires don't mind, so this is Koch PR bullshit;

6. There is NOWHERE for US companies to go if they don't like the hikes, and they know it because they've tried it and would rather put up with regulations over the total control by autocratic societies they've already tried to work in.

This disproves their "slush fund" claim as nothing but their usual shit-for-brains argument.
