LA Times to Democrats: Stop “resisting” Trump long enough to get our INFRASTRUCTURE PORK, please

Trump's trillion-dollar infrastructure plan
It’s amazing what the promise of federal pork can do, eh? The editorial board of the LA Times has been anything but friendly to Donald Trump, but the president’s insistence on a trillion-dollar works-project bill has them asking California Democrats to put a pause on “the resistance.” They want the pork to flow into the Golden State in the short term … and the resistance can wait until later:
Two things ought to come to mind in California when President Trump says he plans to spend $1 trillion on infrastructure. And no, they’re not “Oroville” and “San Jose,” although those are good clues.
The first is that if the federal government is going to prioritize vast new infrastructure spending, California’s water projects should be near the top of the list. Bring it on. …
The state once tried to go it alone but ran out of money and turned to the federal government to complete the Central Valley Project. Later projects built largely by and for Californians had federal help, and such help remains necessary if the state is to maintain and update its water storage and delivery systems to keep pace with an increasingly volatile climate.
