AFP: Tax Hikes are the Wrong Way to Fund Roads and Bridges

May 1, 2019 by AFP

ARLINGTON, Va. – Following President Trump’s meeting with top congressional Democrats Tuesday on infrastructure, Americans for Prosperity Chief Government Affairs Officer Brent Gardner issued the following statement:

“If Congress wants to find money to modernize our roads and bridges, we encourage them to look to their own pockets – Americans have been filling them up for years. Instead of proposing a $2 trillion catch-all ‘infrastructure’ bill and asking hard-working Americans to fund it by paying more at the pump, Washington lawmakers should cut the red tape and stop wasting the tax dollars we give them.”
