house Bill H.R. 22

A Six-Year Plan to Fund America’s Highway System

Argument in favor

A six-year funding solution for the nation’s highway system would eliminate the uncertainty that has dragged on for too long. It may not solve all the nation’s transportation problems, but it’s a compromise that is better than the status quo.

"And yes, those folks and large corporations will have to pay under a Sanders administration more in taxes so that we can use that revenue to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, create the jobs we need, make sure that every kid who has the ability is able to get a college education in America because public colleges and public universities will be tuition-free."

“Twenty-first century businesses need 21st century infrastructure — modern ports, stronger bridges, faster trains and the fastest Internet. Democrats and Republicans used to agree on this. So let’s set our sights higher than a single oil pipeline.” [usnews.com]

This bill ensures that veterans, who often have health care through the VA or DOD, don’t count against a small business’ employee number, for purposes of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). This would give an incentive to hire veterans. Please click the green “Yea” button, to tell your elected official to pass this bill.

Argument opposed

This legislation doesn’t do nearly enough to increase funding for highways and other transportation infrastructure because it is unwilling to raise taxes. The U.S. needs greater investment in highways than this legislation provides.

    This bill ensures that veterans, who often have health care through the VA or DOD, don’t count against a small business’ employee number, for purposes of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). This would give an incentive to hire veterans. Please click the green “Yea” button, to tell your elected official to pass this bill.

    I am all for making the United States infrastructure stronger. However, this bill clearly states that there will be NO TAX INCREASES instead there will be PROGRAM CUTS. We don't need social program funding to be cut for this bill to be introduced. We need the taxes to increase (especially for the wealthy) to fund this plan.

    Like all others before great Idea but falls short to actually help the people and create more jobs. The funding gets out to the companies but it's not tied to any mandatory hiring they just extend out the projects to guarantee their work without expansion. Mass hiring for the local population in each location and projects must be done to expedite the work and actually get money in the pockets of the local men and women it may be temp work but it will get the money where it is needed and most effective in getting people out of the struggles, poverty, homelessness ect.. After the depression when they first started highways system/infrastructure projects every able bodied man in these locations was granted work. That is what brought individuals out of hardships and strength to rise up. It instilled great pride in the communities to say to everyone WE here built this together! In other words unless they hire large percentage of local worker they do not get the contracts No exceptions.

    The argument that "it doesn't do enough" is not a reason to reject it. It does more than we're doing now, and in a way that we won't even raise taxes. Our highway system is completely bankrupt, so we need to fund them immediately. Enough with the bickering and pass a bill that funds our deeply insolvent public transportation.
