“Infrastructure is about helping people get to work and helping businesses thrive because they’ve got workers,” Warren claimed falsely. “We build roads and bridges to do that. We invest in broadband to do that. We need to invest in childcare to do that. Millions of women are out of the workplace right now, and one out of four says the reason is, I can’t get childcare. We were in a crisis before the pandemic hit.”
Fact check: we were not in crisis before the pandemic hit.
“It only got worse during the pandemic,” Warren continued. “This is our chance to expand our idea of what infrastructure means.”
“Never let a good crisis go to waste,” as the Democrat mantra goes, which is why they manufactured a panic in the first place over a Chinese bio-virus with a 99% survival rate, and then enforced draconian, economy-busting lockdowns to damage then-President Trump’s election chances. Now Dems see continued opportunity in the pandemic by using it to expand the definition of “infrastructure” to include things that aren’t infrastructure — like people.
For Democrats, “infrastructure” means whatever they want it to mean, just like “assault weapon” and any other term they need to redefine to suit their agenda.
