It's going to take a lot more money than what he's proposed so far to do it, though.  They might be planning a stand-alone bill. I don't know.  But $8bn isn't going to do much, even if the states and locals put a lot of money in (which they can't afford to do right now).

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
