I'm for the idea of "rebuilding infrastructure". Our Nation becomes less and less efficient without this commitment. What if the debtor countries delay or default on payments?
Our infrastucture has passed inefficient and headed straight to unsafe. I think there are many ways to pay for this. How many pet and unproductive programs could be cut? For example the EPA' s High Poduction Volume program for chemicals. It is nice to know how safe a chemical is. However, do we really need to pour multiple containers of vegetable oil on a rabbit to know that this is not a good idea? Do we really need to force feed animals rat poison to know that swallowing it is a bad plan? Another example is money spent on empty Federal property. This adds up to billions. Time to sell. The are literally hundreds of examples.
