The White House adviser Gary Cohn is floating an increase in the gas tax to pay for infrastructure. Good plan. But how to pick the projects? I lay that out in my book which has just come out in paperback: Hugh Hewitt’s Little Red Book: Winning In The Age of Trump:
The new introduction reviews the roller coaster of the first few months of President Trump’s tenure and the first chapter reminds everyone how to build infrastructure effectively and efficiently, using a model designed by, of all people, director and actor Rob Reiner. Congress should move forward with the gas tax and then employ the Reiner model to allow local governments to build what they need, not what Washington, D.C. says they should have.
