Rebuild America Act: Sen. Sanders has proposed a $1 trillion plan to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and put 13 million Americans to work.
Paid for by making corporations pay taxes on all of the “profits” they have shifted to the Cayman Islands and other offshore tax havens, which the Congressional Research Services estimates may currently create losses that approach $100 billion annually, and other loopholes.

Are these like the "shovel ready" jobs that Obama promised?
And 13 million seems like a lot of people. That's almost 4% of the total population.
And 100B divided by 13M workers is not even 8K a year salary, they'll be huge deficits if he's using these numbers.

I'm digging on this Socialist math.
Let's see ... I'll 'try' to collect $100B ... and I'll spend $1T.
How did you miss this? It's 100B a year, man. The projects will not complete in a year.
What is going on here? LOL
