    Republican tax cuts to billionaires could’ve paid for our entire infrastructure needs.

    I’m watching a report that says to repair America’s crumbling infrastructure would cost $4.5 trillion.

    The GOP/Bush tax cuts for billionaires plus the republican tax cuts for billionaires under Trump would’ve paid for our entire country’s infrastructure needs with money left over.

    That would’ve included roads sewers electrical grid everything needed to run this country and create hundreds of thousands of new jobs for decades.

    All gone just so billionaires could be even more rich.

    And if those billionaires didn’t have tax cuts they would still be billionaires.

    Gee seems to be Barry and his crew could have taken care of the infrastructure while he was in office. You know RightWingers Great Obama??

    Wonder why that never happened??

    Now of course its all Trump's fault.

    You really are a jackass.

    And Democrats like Obama and the entire Party
    could easily pay for their own health care if they quit wasting billions on campaigns instead.

    And after passing through all the regulatory red tape, the environmental impact statements, and the lawsuits by the NIMBY types all of this work would be done sometime in 2035.

    Obviously, you do not comprehend cost involved with maintaining mansions, castles, and yachts on multiple continents.

    and how much of that money will line union bosses pockets and pay salaries for people who never show up for work?

    Remember the Big Dig in Boston and its 700% over budget cost overruns?

    Yeah let's give more money to the fucking government maybe we can make it to 1000% over budget this time
