Making Us Pay for Roads and Bridges

May 8, 2017

“To launch our national rebuilding, I will be asking Congress to approve legislation that produces a trillion-dollar investment in infrastructure of the United States,” Trump said, and added that the money would be raised “through both public and private capital.”

As usual, the working class will fund such projects through tolls, and the rich will reap the benefit. This public-private capital talk is another scam imposed by the thief on the worker.
