President Donald Trump threw Congress for a loop when he announced a proposal to spend $1.5 trillion on a new infrastructure bill, a half trillion more than Republicans had been counting on.

“That question is, how are you going to pay for it,” said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), according to the Washington Examiner’s report. “You tell me how we’re going to pay for it and I’ll tell you what we can do.”

Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) also criticized the $1.5 trillion price tag thrown out by President Donald Trump in last night’s State of the Union address.

"That's a new number," Sanford said. "The difficult question is 'How do you pay for it?""

On today’s show, Doc and Lawrence talked about why infrastructure and jobs make a great sales pitch but spending more money we don't have is bad news for taxpayers.
