Yes, across the board.
Yes, for infrastructure.
Yes, for education. (K-12)
Yes, for job creation.
Yes, for social programs.
Yes, for medical care.
Yes, for the environment.
Yes, but... not for some particular programs (please elaborate).
No. None. Not for anything at all.
Undecided. Convince me either way.
a fairer system of dividing profits between owners & workers, should be devised.
This would be a fairer system: Workers invest their own personal money so the risk is more equitably spread also. While we're at it, the workers can spend extra time at work and home, often for no direct pay or benefit whatsoever, to make sure the business is successful.

Besides, your posts thus far have suggested that you believe that ALL employees should share in the profits equally, whether or not their risk and/or effort is equal.
ETA: It is also noted that you continually edit out some of my points in your responses. Must be too inconvenient.

There are no guarantees as to what was "the correct decision". You might start a business and lose everything. You might choose to work for someone and never make much money - or lose your job. There is no "fair" way of dividing profits except paying enough to keep someone the company needs, and demanding enough as an employee to be paid what you're worth compared to those who are willing to replace you.
The US is an odd ship. The captain yells out when he sees obtacles , but 535 individual propellers do the steering.
Folks, I'm not talking about mom & pop stores.
I am talking about Walmart, BJs, Pathmark, Old Navy, etc etc. MASSIVE franchises that make billions in profits.
