Absolutely! Privatization threatens to destroy the very fabric of our democracy and that which makes our country great: the power of the people! This is the REAL enemy that America should face, and its already here.

So, will the poor and middle class citizens of the United States be told to pay for public infrastructure while Trump and Ryan reduce taxes on the rich and wealthy? That isn't how we built our great American infrastructure after WWII. From that time, we have good roads, clean water and better sewers than 99% of the world. The Republicans have been coasting on our success ever since Eisenhower. Time's running out.

Too much capitalism, and far less democracy. GOP not smart enough to give us a 21st century infrastructure.

Infrastructure jobs overwhelmingly go to middle class men, those who are already comparatively well-off. Tragically, it is the only idea the US has had for decades, as the overall quality of life in the US went from being rated at #1 when Reagan was first elected, down to #48 by the time Obama was elected.

It's just another method by the Great Grifter and his toadies and to loot the treasury by giving public tax money to private investors.

Look no further than the parking meter debacle in Chicago. Former Mayer Daley sold off all the parking meters for a quick money injection. The new owners are now in the process of increasing the fees again on the heels of the Cubs championship.

An infrastructure privatization will mean NO roads, bridges, tunnels, and (who knows) walking paths will be free. Greed is never fulfilled. Eisenhower is crying now.

I believe Trumps greatest desire is to become the worlds first trillionaire. This so called infrastructure plan is just one of the steps he has planned for skimming money. And I suspect even this is just one more of his distractions so we don't look at what he's really doing...

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
