Because the Federal government is so good at handling its money.

BTW, we already pay federal fuel taxes that are supposed to pay for maintaining the system. Where'd all that money go?
+1 I read the US spends around 2% of our federal taxes on infrastructure. A lot more goes to military (27%), healthcare (22%) and unemployment (9.8%). The rest is education, food energy, etc..the least I believe goes to scientific research. Education is around 2%.
