American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act Stops the Highway Trust Fund Bailouts

Congressman John Boehner
February 13, 2012


The American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act (H.R. 7) is a sharp departure from the pork-laden highway bills of the past.  The bill includes pro-growth reforms that remove barriers to job creation and focus taxpayer resources on high-priority infrastructure projects  without earmarkswithout adding to our national debt, and without raising taxes on families and small businesses.  Just as important, it makes it much more difficult for future Congresses to add to the deficit if the Highway Trust Fund runs out of money.  When Democrats controlled the Congress, they would routinely add to the deficit if the Highway Trust Fund ran out of money.  For example:

The American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act takes a different approach in two ways:

In the Pledge to America, Republicans promised to reform the budget process and help stop spending money we dont have.  Specifically, the Pledge said: The spending process in Washington is designed to make it easy to increase spending and raise taxes and difficult to cut spending and lower taxes.  The deck is stacked against limited government and fiscal responsibility. This must stop.  The American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act is consistent with the Pledge and its focus on spending reform and creating a better environment for private-sector job growth.
