WAY too logical for bureaucratic minds! But a much better plan if that is indeed the way to fund roads. I say let the states do it, with some from the feds for fed roads. Clean up the management of the road crews and it might possibly work. Again, it may not.

Yet another "Trust Fund" is broke. This time, discussion involves an alleged "Transportation Trust Fund".

As with Social Security, there is no "Transportation Trust Fund", only a stack of unmarketable IOUs from one branch of government to another.

If there is any trust in the system, there shouldn't be, and soon won't be. Obama will surely see to that.
