Highway Spending

Fire of Liberty

Here's a good editorial in the New York Sun which points out how Senator Schumer(D-NY) and similar politicians in D.C. are so good at raising taxes and spending the money of American taxpayers on their own pork projects which prevents the citizens from keeping their own money and directing it towards their state highway funds or investing in the private entities who build and maintain our bridges and roadways. Someone who seems to have a good bit to say about how the taxpayers and the states in general would benefit if these roads were taken out of the hands of the government and moved into the private sphere is Steven Malanga of the Manhattan Institute. See here for his most recent piece in the Wall Street Journal.
