    Does it take into consideration the latest tax cuts for the rich that are being added to the Peoples' debt?

    I'm sure it never occurred to you that a hit piece from the Daily Kos might not be the most factual, balanced analysis on the subject (or on any subject, for that matter).

    I'm guessing that you don't know that Trump is proposing a massive boost in infrastructure spending.

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/whitehouse.gov/files/omb/budget/fy2018/fact_sheets/2018 Budget Fact Sheet_Infrastructure Initiative.pdf

    I'm also guessing that you don't know that states have slashed their infrastructure spending, hoping that Uncle Sugar will foot the rest of the bill.

    It’s Time for States to Invest in Infrastructure

    Finally, I'm guessing that you don't know that Trump has already attracted tens of billions in foreign investment in America, much of it for infrastructure. For example, the Trump administration got the Saudis to agree to invest $40 billion in U.S. infrastructure.

    How do tax cuts for the rich, help with infrastructure now; since the tax cuts are being financed by debt.

    The only thing worse than DailyKos posting fake news is for morons like you to proudly post it like it actually has merit and means something.

    the tax cuts are being financed by debt.

    The government doesn't need to sell bonds to allow me to keep more of my own money.

    Tax cuts being financed by debt is simple and socialized, income redistribution.

    I don’t know why you all have wasted 17 pages on the subject. The op is demonstrably false. Democratic efforts and program mandates have drained all money to entitlement programs and stolen money from infrastructure. More links would be good.

    Reducing the tax with held from my paycheck requires no financing. Not a dime.
