President’s Infrastructure Plan Is Not Adding Up For Some

February 13, 2018

President Donald Trump has unveiled his long-awaited infrastructure plan which proposes turning $200 billion in federal dollars into at least $1.5 trillion by leveraging local and state money, plus funds from the private sector, to invest in infrastructure projects. The plan would also streamline the permitting process for federal projects.

 

Rebuilding the country’s roads and bridges was always viewed as an issue Democrats could get behind, but it seems they may need some convincing on this plan.

 

Rosabeth Moss Kanter, a Harvard Business School professor and author of "Move: How to Rebuild and Reinvent American’s Infrastructure," and Lylah Alphonse, managing news editor at U.S. News and World Report, joined Jim Braude to discuss if there is a way for both parties to get to yes.
