For all the “deficit Hawks” out there, how about a few “Infrastructure Hawks”  They have the skills and
technologies in China to build 200 mph trains and 100 story buildings in less than a year, In Abu Dhabi
where they have a thousand years of oil, they are building a completely green, petrochemical
free prototype city (Masdar).. Whats wrong with the US?

We’ve been at war with one country or another for 40 years and haven’t wanted to pay for it.  Globalization.  Declining revenues.  Baby boomers retiring.

IOW, we ain’t got no money.
