Advice for "Job creators"

There's this political ad where this guy keeps saying he'll go to Congress to create jobs. Here's an idea, Mr. "Job Creator" = get the government to raise taxes on the rich so it can invest money to refurbish all the crumbling infrastructure, like all the hundreds of dams, hundreds of bridges, hundreds of roads, and other things that are falling apart badly enough that they are a threat to life and limb. The dams alone could kill millions when (not if) they fall apart. Think of it: you'd be preventing lots of horrible tragedies AND creating jobs at the same time!

It would also be a massive political win for anyone who did it, and fairly easy to do, if the person makes sure to repeat the "prevent future tragedies" and "create jobs" stuff often, then accuse anyone opposed to the idea of being in favor of loss of life on a massive scale and anti-jobs. I'm sure they could also get the corporations on board, too, by saying "Hey, we gotta buy the materials and labor from you guys. And we could add more bridges and stuff after the old ones are redone, to bring in more business traffic." Hell, it sounds so easy and win-win that I'm shocked nobody's done it yet!
