President Obama called for renewed efforts in nation-building recently — not in Afghanistan or Iraq – but here, at home, in America. The president was referring to the state of the country’s aging and in many cases, poorly maintained infrastructure. More than a quarter of the country’s bridges need significant repairs. Over four thousand dams are considered “unsafe”. A billion gallons of water is lost every year due to leaking pipes. Nearly everyone agrees that more spending on infrastructure is needed, the billion dollar question is — how are we going to pay for it.
