There are a lot of things in New York City that are a mess. There’s potholes and trash on the streets, violent crime, and the city’s mass transit system isn’t up to standard. The subway system is old and suffers constant beakdowns and delays. Trains rarely run on time and often leave commuters with no way to get home.
With all these problems in his state’s largest city, who does New York’s senior senator blame for the mess the city’s in? Himself? The city’s exclusively Democrat leadership? Its hyper-liberal mayor, Bill De Blasio? Previous uber-liberal mayor, Michael Bloomberg? The state’s massively-liberal governor, Andrew Cuomo? Any of the 48 Democrat members of its 51-member city council?
No, none of them. According to Cryin’ Chuck, the problems, which have been getting progressively worse over the years, are the responsibility of President Trump.

President Trump did introduce a plan. He proposed a trillion dollar infrastructure investment and revitalization plan, that specifically addressed his campaign talking points about putting Americans back to work building and repairing bridges, tunnels, airports, etc., and doing so using U.S. steel, cement and other building essentials.
What happened to it?
Schumer and his Democrat sheep didn’t like it, dismissed it out-of-hand and went to war in the press to defeat it.
Once the President unveiled the infrastructure revitalization plan, Schumer said, “President Trump’s campaign promises on infrastructure are crumbling faster than our roads and bridges.”
So, about that transit mess in New York City, Schumer and his Democrats should be held accountable.
Allen B. West3 reports:
Lots of things in New York City are a mess. Although (just as in all liberal enclaves) taxation is sky high there are potholes and trash all over the streets, violent crime is a persistent problem and the city’s mass transit system is a thorn in every New Yorker’s side. The dilapidated subway system suffers constant breakdowns and delays. Trains never run on time and daily leave commuters stranded in their quest to get back home.
So bad is the NYC subway that a recent survey published by the New York Daily News found a whopping 74 pecent have been late to work due to subway delays adding, “New Yorkers are showing up late, losing pay and even getting fired due to the sorry state of the city’s subways.”
