It is wonderful that our millionaires and billionaires do so much philanthropy for people in other parts of the world, but it would be more wonderful if they invested at home. Our infrastructure could use their expertise. They could repair a crumbling bridge, fix a road that is falling apart, sponsor a high-speed railroad and have their name on it.
We are no longer No. 1 What a shame. The Koch brothers buy elections, let them buy a bridge. That would be something.
