    Every part of the Infrastructure plan has a positive impact on the working class and families in the New River Valley. Of course, Griffith only supported the tax cuts for the wealthy (trickle down does not work), increased spending at the military industrial complex (not to pay the actual soldiers more money, improve their housing, or healthcare to veterans. During President Donald Trump’s tenure in the White House, the national debt grew by some $7.8 trillion—or nearly 40 percent compared to the amount when former President Barack Obama left office in January 2017. Where was Griffith and his sharpened pencil the past four years? The United States is 13th among industrialized countries on infrastructure. 13th. Number 1 is too much to ask for but can we get to number 8 or 9? Broadband should be end to end in the Commonwealth by now. Bridges and roads should not be old or in disrepair. Do corporations use the I-81 corridor? They do. The corporate tax rate should be increased to pay for this. Not another tax on the working class making less than $400,000 per year. I am not a Democrat and even I can see that during the Trump years the spending was unfettered. The rest of us suffered. Now that a Democrat is trying to do something for the working class and the poor; our Sedition Caucus member is is the fiscal hawk.
