If the interstate system were built from scratch today, it would cost over $500 billion.

With our enormous national debt, Congress should sell off government owned assets to pay down the deficit.
A budget proposal from the Heritage Foundation proposes that the federal government sell assets over a 15 year period. The plan suggests selling property, real estate, mineral rights, and energy-generation facilities worth $260 billion. In line with the last suggestion, President Obama's budget proposal suggests that the government consider selling the TVA to a private power company. American Enterprise Institute economist Kevin Hassett has suggested that the federal government should sell the interstate highway system to bring in cash. The buyers would then recoup their investment and eventually make a profit by charging motorists tolls to use the highways.

After 24 hours the vote is 7 to 0 against selling the interstates.
Looks like selling the TVA is a non-starter too. Southern Republicans claim to be for privitization and the free market but they are back pedaling on the issue when it comes to TVA.
So just how are we going to pay down the national debt? Working people can't afford to pay more taxes. Taxes on the job creators will only drive investment and jobs overseas. The welfare class voting bloc is too strong for their entitlements to be cut. Nobody wants to sell off government assets.
