The Moment of Truth

Posted by olemike on 12/06/2010

Recommendation from Bi-partisan Debt Commission.

RECOMMENDATION 1.7: FULLY FUND THE TRANSPORTATION TRUST FUND INSTEAD OF RELYING ON DEFICIT SPENDING. Dedicate a 15-cent per gallon increase in the gas tax to transportation funding, and limit spending if necessary to match the revenues the trust fund collects each year.

Actually, I think the Federal government should turn over the highway building and maintenance to the individual states.  Let them collect the gas taxes and determine what road construction/maintenance needs are necessary for their state.
