So infrastructure is screwed under trump. Gotta save that money for a wall and parade I guess.Let’s flip taxes then.. if our states have to foot 80% then we should pay more into our states and less into federal withholding
Effectively this isn't an infrastructure plan. It's a federal subsidy to developers. There's no public interest requirement; instead, the program favors the projects that can attract private money.
It's an economic boondoggle. Infrastructure like roads and rail boost the economy, but private companies don't want to pay for them.
Then the the federal government should not be asking for taxes if they are not funding anything any more. If states are paying for things, we'll pay state taxes. Trump can fall off his wall.
