A long-term funding solution for repairing our roads is needed

What about a long-term funding solution for aging infrastructure in the U.S.? President Obama knows what’s up.

“In the budget he sends Congress next week, Obama will propose that half of the $302 billion he’s seeking come from an overhaul of the corporate tax system.” Yet most of the following article talks about raising fuel taxes which, by the article’s own admission, has been projected to be inadequate for getting us better roads. If we’re going to be a nation of interconnected cars, buses and trucks we must expect corporate America to help pay for the roads these cars travel on! Through paying taxes, corporations can pay for more than half of the $300 billion sought by the President, that is fair.
