Now why should someone from Texas pay for riders of the INEPTA (septa) transportation system in PA? Let the people of PA pay for it. Why doesnt the Government of PA have enough revenue to pay for it? Because the Federal Gov takes so much. The Fed Gov takes the people of PA's money, siphons off a large part of it, then returns it to the people of PA. Make sense to anyone?
President Obama has been on a blitz while pushing what seems to be an evergreen priority for Democrats these days: "infrastructure investment." In his State of the Union speech, President Obama spoke of Merica's "deteriorating roads and bridges" and proposed what he called a "Fix-It-First" program that would see the government hire construction workers to work on America's infrastructure.

This worry is overblown. The Reason Foundation put out a report this week that found America's infrastructure is in fine shape, though there's certainly work to be done.
