May 6 - May 10, 2019

At the end of April, President Trump and Democratic congressional leaders announced the agreement of a $2 trillion infrastructure plan. However, no agreements were made on how the plan would be paid for. In anticipation of what ideas will be brought to the table in the next bipartisan meeting, how do you think Congress will decide to fund this proposal?

Yup...raise some form of tax, or kill it...it's an either / or.

Partial funding through a modest increase in the gas tax. But also by a shipping infrastructure fee based on weight and distance for online purchases to be paid by Amazon and other online vendors who ship by ground transportation or by infrastructure fees on interstate trucking firms

Spending cuts anyone?

The only way to adequately fund this program is to work toward public/private partnerships where both private and public money is invested. Some partial private ownership of infrastructure will work with public oversight.

Gas Tax hasn't moved any for 26 years, seems like a pretty obvious first choice unfortunately...say $0.20/gallon?

why not $0.50? or $0.99?
