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?""
