Indivisible Project Reacts to Trump Infrastructure “Plan”
WASHINGTON - In response to the White House’s release of its infrastructure “plan,” Chad Bolt, Senior Policy Manager at the Indivisible Project, issued the following statement:
“We need a real infrastructure plan that makes serious federal investments in modern and reliable infrastructure — not another scam on the American people put forward by the career con artist in the White House.
Unfortunately, Trump’s infrastructure plan is a scam that will result in public assets being privatized and costs going up for taxpayers through user fees, tolls, and higher state and local taxes. It will NOT result in good jobs or better infrastructure — but it would be a massive handout to private equity funds and an environmental catastrophe that leaves behind the serious needs of too many communities.”
THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES
Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
