The best healthcare is preventive maintenance, and I could see getting people to eating better diets and doing physical activity. The actual
healthcare should be separate from the infrastructure that is needed.
In Chicago, the el line is in need of much work. It was built in the late 1800s, and much of it is original. Many stations are falling apart, and
could use upgrades or replacements. The city also needs new buses, and should order electric or hydrogen fuel cell ones.
The commuter train lines need to be expanded, and they need to finish purchasing newer cars to replace the older ones they have now. Also, second and
third tracks need to be added to some lines, as both commuter and freight lines are running more trains.
The roads are in terrible shape, and many need to be replaced outright. Bridges and viaducts need work, as water leakage has weakened some of them.
This is in Chicago, and there are other major cities that need as much or more work done. Those projects create jobs, and the people who get the jobs
can pay their bills and buy the products they have been putting off. Yes, the jobs are temporary, but they will last for several years as many
projects take a while to complete. When they are done with them, other projects will be funded and ready for workers to complete. These projects can
keep people on for more than a decade to do the work that needs to be done. Unlike a certain politician, work and jobs are the same.
