The answer is soooo obvious I'm surprised you're even asking it. Makes me wonder. :D

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...
