We need to invest in our infrastructure, but this doesn't make fiscal sense. First, the Highway Trust Fund either needs to be done away with or revamped. Taxing gas is not a sustainable method of taxation, especially with the rapid increase of hybrid and electric automobiles. There are numerous reports and suggestions about what to do with the Highway Trust Fund. The Eno Center for Transportation has a good one. In conclusion, yes we need to invest A LOT of money into our infrastructure that has been neglected for decades now, but we need to do so in a way that is fiscally sustainable.
