The rating for the quality of our infrastructure in the US nationwide is a D! If we are going to improve poverty-stricken areas, then we must invest more in infrastructure. This will not only help rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, but put millions of Americans to work. Giving more tax breaks to the rich is not going to help lift the poor out from poverty, and it is hard to think that most businesses will open up shop in poor areas where residents in those areas do not have enough money to buy their goods! I wish the libertarian sponsor of this bill ("Ayn" Rand Paul) could get that through his thick head!
