Get ready for Trump to give away America

So, Trump is moving to infrastructure. He will boast that he is a builder and therefore an expert. But how is he going to repair the tens of thousands of bridges, roads, and pipework, as well as tunnels, rail and port projects that are in need of repair without spending many hundreds of billions or even trillions of dollars without spending more money? Watch out for public-private-partnerships that will basically sell or lease these things that we all own between us to big business that will then fund his 2020 campaign. Watch out for sneaky hidden taxes that will impact on poor and middle incomes the most. Watch out for the biggest giveaway of American assets in history. You can be sure that whatever he says tonight will be peppered in his usual lies to make his own brand of shit sandwich look better than it really is, as history has shown time and time again.

1. Give it away and allow profiteers to collect tolls...

And the conservatives will think this is just great as they hand over $10 to a corporation for what would have been a $1 tax...

2. In a letter to the editor

several years ago I said the Republican answer to infrastructure would be giving away the commons. Our roads that we paid for would be given to profiteers and we'd have to pay to use them. Bridges would be toll bridges in the future. Will the sheeple up with this put?
