Trump’s infrastructure plan leaves U.S. behind, enriches Wall Street

During his post-election victory speech, Donald Trump promised to rebuild America’s infrastructure and make it “second to none.” Unfortunately, his plan fails to address the country’s critical infrastructure needs while delivering a windfall for Wall Street at the expense of middle-class families.

The beating heart of the Trump plan is a combination of new tax credits for investors, and tolls and other user fees for Americans. That means huge profits for wealthy Wall Street investors and less money in the pockets of working families. Unsurprisingly, Wall Street is aggressively supporting Trump’s plan.
