American Exceptionalism: Dumpster Diving Eagle

Today seems to be the world telling us we were right:

Trump advisers call for privatizing some public assets to build new infrastructure

The Trump administration, determined to overhaul and modernize the nation’s infrastructure, is drafting plans to privatize some public assets such as airports, bridges, highway rest stops and other facilities, according to top officials and advisers. In his proposed budget released Tuesday, President Trump called for spending $200 billion over 10 years to ‘incentivize’ private, state and local spending on infrastructure. Trump advisers said that to entice state and local governments to sell some of their assets, the administration is considering paying them a bonus. The proceeds of the sales would then go to other infrastructure projects.

We’ve been saying The Russian Usurper’s infrastructure grift was going to be selling off assets like airports, FAA, Amtrak, and so on. I don’t think he’s found a way (yet?) to sell off water works, but I bet he’s trying to.

This is a travesty.

    Airports, the FAA, Amtrak, etc., none of these kinds of infrastructure have any serious revenue generating potential. Either Trump will get nobody in the private sector to bid on these things or they will be just sold off for the parts after privatization (looking at you Amtrak). Everybody in this administration is an out and out crook.

    Nope. This is straight up theft, of the commons, or the community chest. It is a transfer of wealth, yet again, and makes public assets transform into private gain.

    We get; loss of control, loss of oversight, loss of assets we’ve already paid for.
    Fuck that shite. And Fuck dead Margaret Thatcher too just on general principal.
    Harrumph!

    Red states will allow their assets to be sold off and the Heartland will literally become flyover country.
