Our infrastructure is a dangerous embarrassment and a symbol of how weak our state has become. We are still living off of the investments of past generations in the 1960s. We need to own the future, which includes building a world-class infrastructure befitting the world’s most advanced society in 2020. When our infrastructure works better we’ll all work better. This will also help put millions of Americans back to work and demonstrate that America can yet build great things.
Problems to be Solved
- America’s infrastructure is outdated and breaking down, resulting in increased inefficiencies and even dangers that impact millions of people each day
As President, I will…
- Propose a $1 trillion infrastructure investment initiative ‘Rebuild America’ over 5 years that will support over 13 million jobs and generate $1.5 trillion-plus in increased efficiency and productivity.
- Include a series of Challenge Grants to include advanced materials and designs in new American structures with an emphasis on sustainability.
- Expand the fiber-optic network to include rural areas and make it so that 98% of Americans have access to high-speed Internet.
