A $54 Billion Bailout
Our friends at Hertiage Action have a great piece out today that looks at CBO data and says that if House Republicans vote for the Highway Bill, they are basically guaranteeing a $54 billion bailout of the Highway Trust fund over the next five years.
It’s incredible that anyone would even consider this good policy, let alone conservative. The Club for Growth is advocating that members of Congress vote NO on the Highway Bill and instead call for devolution of the gas tax and highway spending to the states.
Let your member of Congress know that you support the Club’s position on the Highway Bill. Why should taxpayers be on the hook for another unfunded government boondoggle?
