    Let's start with this:

    Revenue for the Highway Trust Fund is derived almost entirely from federal gas taxes and distributed to all 50 states.
    and then continue with this:

    A perpetual deadlock in Congress has resulted in eight extensions of the national transportation bill, causing roads to crumble, bridges to fall, and transit to break down.

    Let's try this, when you buy a gallon of gasoline, when you start driving, you will be paying 18.4 cents per gallon FEDERAL Excise taxes on the gasoline and if you have a diesel you will be paying 24.4 cents per gallon. Those taxes generated 85 billion dollars in 2013. The States collected 143 billion dollars in excise taxes and the total bill for roads and highways was 183 billion dollars meaning that out of the 85 billion collected by the Federal Govt. 42 billion went to roads, where did the other 43 billion go?

    So, let's see if there is anything else you don't know, first you don't understand that our Founders created a small Central Govt. and a part time legislature yet you claim our govt. is socialist in nature thus saving the capitalistic system.

    Second you obviously have no idea of monetary policy as you believe printing more money is the answer and will have limited affect on the value of the dollar

    Third you believe poverty is based upon a federal standard published in a book and not related to the revenue and expenses of the individual along with not understanding that personal responsibility affects the poverty level.

    I could go on but expect a one line answer that totally ignores the facts and just continues to spout textbook sentences that have no relationship to human behavior.

    You are welcome to cite your sources. Providing for the general welfare of the United States is delegated to one Body politic.

    Providing for the general welfare is the goal of the Church, not for the Federal Govt. My sources come from the budget of the United States and the Federal Highway Dept. Apparently general welfare is something else you don't understand as well.

    Still no sources to establish more than appeals to ignorance?

    The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises,

    to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States;


    but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

    Some people simply have to learn on their own and cannot be taught anything. You appear to be in that class. Interesting that we have a 3.8 trillion dollar Federal Govt. today and cannot seem to solve any social problems. Shouldn't that be a sign that there is something wrong with our govt? Could it possibly be that politicians are more concerned about keeping their jobs vs. doing their jobs and that social problems are state, local, and personal issues, not the Federal Govt?

    I know this is hard for you to understand but you live in a state that has massive debt and great dependence on the taxpayers just to live. You don't appear to have a problem with that. You spout words like welfare, poverty, and other bumper sticker words that just show that you think with your heart and not your brain even though you use terms that tell me you spent a lot of time in the classroom, too bad you haven't spent much time in the real world. Tell me how does a politician in D.C. solve a local problem in your community?

    I confess that my 35 years in the business world, my 40 years of marriage and with a family, living and traveling all over the country has created nothing but ignorance. I only wish that I could be half as smart as you think you are.

    I only know I don't need to appeal to ignorance instead of reason.

    That is why I am going to limit my posts to you because it is appeal certainly not to reason.

    I don't mind: Still no sources to establish more than appeals to ignorance?

    Daniel, I asked you a direct question earlier in the thread that you still have not addressed....did you miss it? or just ignoring it because you can't answer it?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
