Well ok let's say you're deferring part costs to future generations who will be future users.  But the problem with this logic (not least being the other costs Impact pointed out) is that there's always going to be things needed to be built, new bridges and roads etc. that future generations will need to build.  So why not just pay current costs off ASAP to avoid needless interest payments and save money?

Infrastructure costs may be incurred all at once, if they were all built around the same time... it might not make sense to take a big hit at one time.

But I am thinking we are already using more sense than politics allows.
