    Budget - good for infrastructure

    Seems to me if they want to increase jobs (a must do) they have to continue or increase infrastructure spending. The do not have to increase defense, SS, Medicare. And they will have to increase taxes on the high earners or Repubs are doomed. It is obvious to everyone that the $millions of pay is too much at the top- nobody is worth that much. And their tax it too low. Their salaries have climbed over the years only because they don't want to be below average, not because they are worth it. (FACT). And the tax rates were higher for them before too. So taxing them at a higher rate is justified given the circumstances.
