Hillary Clinton’s Infrastructure Plan Is a Boondoggle for Taxpayers

Following former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s announcement of a five-year, $275 billion infrastructure program, FreedomWorks Senior Economic Contributor Stephen Moore commented:

"Hillary Clinton’s latest near $300 billion spending plan may make labor unions and the construction lobby jump for joy, but does she not understand that our nation is already $18.5 trillion in debt. Clinton’s campaign spending promises are starting to break the bank. The only way she can pay for this massive spending binge is through either crippling tax increases on the middle class or saddling our children and grandchildren with even more crushing debt burdens.”

“And how can she say with a straight face that she is for more infrastructure when she just came out against building the Keystone XL Pipeline – a project that would create thousands of jobs without costing taxpayers a penny?”
