Professor of Government and Public Service says infrastructure deal would be unlike those in the past Twitter
Robert B. and Helen S. Meyner Professor of Government and Public Service, John Kincaid, spoke with WFMZ-TV Channel 69 about the proposed $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal that President Joe Biden is traveling the country to promote.
The infrastructure deal is one of the key priorities of Biden’s American Jobs Plan. A group of bipartisan senators came together to push negotiations for the deal—which will not raise taxes despite half being new spending—forward.
“These are some of the new dimensions of infrastructure that we have not seen in the past,” said Kincaid. “I think the key question is whether the proposed payment mechanisms will work. Will the IRS be able to extract enough from the wealthy? Another part of the payment plan is simply economic growth will pay for it. Well, that remains to be seen.”
