    Whoo-hoo! More private toll roads, private toll bridges etc. (i.e. Dark Age feudalism), and to make matters worse, if they don’t make enough profits, we (i.e. taxpayers) ‘rescue’ the owners (i.e. socializing the losses).
    I guess if ‘democrats’ want to mandate the privatization of healthcare (or be subject to an enforcement mechanism, a fine, a tax, or whatever you want to call it), we can’t really gripe if republicans want to privatize the infrastructure (and we pay if they don't make enough money).
    Feudalism is the new 'democracy' (especially if everyone votes for it).
