Soglin speaks out against Trump's infrastructure plan, calls Walker a hypocrite

MADISON, Wis. - Madison Mayor Paul Soglin does not agree with President Donald Trump's new infrastructure plan. 

The president's plan includes $1.5 trillion but only $200 billion of that would come from the federal government. The rest would come from state and local spending and private investments. 

With the infrastructure plan relying on local and state government, Walker said toll roads are still an option to help with funds. 

Soglin said the governor is being hypocritical. 

"Scott Walker's become Donald Trump's favorite sock puppet right now," Soglin said. "This is a governor who said I'm not raising taxes. This is a governor who said I'm not getting sucked into state money on matches for the federal government."

Yesterday while at the nation's Capitol, Walker asked the president for more money to complete the Interstate 94 project from the Wisconsin state line to Milwaukee.
