Infrastructure 2018

Donald Trump and the GOP plan to privatize US infrastructure using so-called public-private partnerships. Taxpayers would supply 20% of the funds and private companies 80% for the right to charge tolls to make a profit on their investments. How would that work? Imagine a five-lane bridge or expressway. In the right hand slow lane would be a long line of slow-moving vehicles taking advantage of very low or nonexistent tolls. The three center lanes would be crowded as expressways are now and they would pay a moderate toll. The left hand or Lexus lane would be moving at or above the speed limit and be restricted to vehicles willing to pay tolls that only the wealthy could afford on a frequent basis. I think that this is what the GOP want.

Trump must go.
