P.S. — A “per-mile use fee” is the closest thing you’ll ever get to a system where the users actually pay for the infrastructure. I only wish this principle would be applied to ALL public infrastructure and services — like health care and education, for example.

I’m not disagreeing with what you’re saying. Unfortunately, what’s being proposed in the article is not that.

I’m also not going for the obvious quibble over “only little house on the prairie” drivers. PER MILE pertains to distance covered, not time spent in a car swearing uselessly... You know this; you just like to argue.

There is absolutely no reason for the Federal government to finance an “interstate highway system”.
