Unlike Trump’s plan, a corporate giveaway that creates new tax loopholes, Bernie Sanders’s Rebuild America Act would be paid for by eliminating tax loopholes that allow hugely profitable multinational corporations to stash their profits in offshore tax havens around the world.
Trump has proposed $137 billion in tax breaks to private investors who want to finance toll roads, toll bridges, and other projects that American workers have to pay to use. Experts across the political spectrum say that private financing plan won’t address many of America’s most pressing infrastructure needs — like repairing roads and replacing outdated, potentially dangerous water pipes in poorer communities like Flint.
On the other hand, the Rebuild America Act would fund $1 trillion in new infrastructure spending — and it’s already paid for. The act would pay for itself by closing tax loopholes on those same corporations that are piling their money up in offshore tax havens and leaving small business owners and other working Americans to shoulder the load. It’s a win-win.
