I wanted to return to this. What I am saying is that people like Mark Cuban and T. Boone Pickens have more to lose if the infrastructure like roads or broadband fell apart. If America couldn’t ensure the integrity of its markets, these people stand to lose BILLIONS of dollars. So, yes, they should be more obligated to ensure that the system is funded than somebody with significantly less wealth.
