Jerry is not happy with Donald

From Politico:

Jerry Brown heads to D.C., with Schwarzenegger right behind him
California Gov. Jerry Brown doesn't travel much out of state, but amid intensifying conflict with Washington over health care, climate change, immigration and more, the governor of the nation’s most populous state will head east next week — his first trip to the nation's capital since President Donald Trump’s inauguration.

The visit will come less than a week after Trump released a budget proposal that would cut deeply into social service programs and begin an easing of national vehicle emission standards — both anathema to policies in Brown’s heavily Democratic state. The governor called the environmental action “an unconscionable gift to polluters,” and California officials this week filed a motion in federal court to intervene in a lawsuit automakers brought against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

A bit more:

It's unclear with whom Brown will seek meetings — or if they will include any Trump administration officials. The lack of scheduling is typical of the fourth-term Democrat, who eschews public schedules for the flexibility they deny him.

Brown traveled regularly out of state during his previous time as governor, from 1975 to 1983, and as in his three failed bids for president. Since returning to office in 2011, however, the 78-year-old Brown has largely limited his travel to events related to climate change. He skipped a meeting of the nation’s governors in Washington in February.

Bet he doesn't get very far meeting with people - and this wonderful bit:

While Brown has promised to confront Trump on issues ranging from immigration to health care and the environment, he has held out hope that Trump could prove helpful on infrastructure spending.

Brown is seeking to build a high-speed rail system and a $15.5 billion Delta water conveyance. Of Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure proposal, Brown said in his State of the State address in January, “I say, amen to that, man!”

I would love to be a fly on the wall for that meeting. That is $1T divided between all of the states, not just California. Jerry's new train set is budgeted at $68 Billion. Take one Trillion dollars and divide it by 50 states and you get $20 Billion per state. Jerry wants $83 Billion for his two pet projects - not counting the inevitable cost overruns. How about fixing I-5 Jerry - that highway is horrible and getting worse.
