The question was "How does increasing rates increase FUTURE DEBT to taxpayers?" Not costs.<quoted text>
How does raising rates increase cost to taxpayers?
Taxpayers that use the particular service that has been leased out are going to pay higher service charges. Triple and or greater than what they were paying. When lease is up do you think the charges will drop? Think not..
My point is that toll roads are financed through bond sales, built, then leased to an operator. The lease pays the debt and the drivers pay to use the toll roads. Where do the taxpayers come into play? Correct me if I'm wrong.
