Tax Reform


Donald Trump’s Infrastructure Plan dramatically differs from the standard process for financing the building and repair of our nation’s highways, water systems, and other community resources in that typically state and local governments design, build and maintain such projects. They are paid for with a combination of state and federal grants and by borrowing money through low-interest municipal bonds.

Trump’s plan, in contrast, encourages state and local governments to turn over control of infrastructure projects to private investors. Their investments would be heavily subsidized by taxpayers. For every dollar an investor puts into a project, they will receive a tax credit for 82 cents—an enormous subsidy from the federal government to elite Wall Street investors.

In addition to the infrastructure projects being publicly-subsidized, governments would allow investors to raise revenues through tolls and other user fees. Building these projects would be heavily subsidized by our tax dollars, and then we would have to pay again to use them.
