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..
The question was "How does increasing rates increase FUTURE DEBT to taxpayers?" Not costs.
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.

Old Tex living the Dream of ownership. Consider what would occur if Tex does not pay his taxes to the sovereignty of the land. Hmm renting, leasing would be a more appropriate definition. Consider even if Tex wants to construct something he will be required to first to get permission from the sovereignty. Which then may limit construction and require certain licenses and inspections to make sure it is within the parameters of the sovereignty. This Tex defines as ownership! Dream on.. Stop paying your rent and the nightmare will commence.
What entity is the soveriegnty in this situation?

Future debt is in the increase to say the toll charges. Debt is not paid off any more than when one rents. In business there is a break even point with properties. Then they become losses and are allow to fall into disrepair. Called bleeding the property. Just as those that rent our infrastructures will do when they reach the point of parody. Lease up and infrastructure repairs falls to the taxpayer. Roadway will then be assessed to its potential earnings of what the raised service cost was. Note; Profit of the private industry is added into the assessment, thus once again raising taxes for the infrastructure they have already paid for ,Plus the profits that were derived will be maintained . Taxpayer paid once, twice, thrice for the same infrastructure and the profits that were obtained by the private enterprise is theirs to keep and reinvest.
Another example; Mineral rights are leased out to private enterprises. Now the majority of times lease is not put up for auction, which has proven to be most effective for returns to taxpayers. Common practice its behind closed doors with one bid. Bid turns out to be say $100,000,000 for a $500 Billion transaction. Less infrastructure to recoup minerals and profits go to the leaser of say $20 Billion! Land returned to govt. in distress and taxpayers pay for the clean up and restoration both in monetary and health. If you are interested in a more in depth knowledge of these lease/rent scenarios I can refer you to Book recently written by Nobel Economic writer and author.

Yes we finally agree. What I build will return back to the cosmos regardless of how I manage it. There will be others that will use it when I no longer can afford to manage it all. That is the circle of life. We are but temporary landlords, if so wish for a more proper title.

No Bernard we do not agree, not on anything. Take your so called intellect and shove it where the sun dosen't shine. I merely pointed out that you claimed ownership, something you denied my right to do, and now you want to rationalize or whatever you want to call it. AND I DON'T CARE! Stinking Commie Puke.

I have known Perry for what he really is for years, and it was his crackpot wife Annita that lied and said that God told her to tell him to run for president. Unfortunatly he still doesn't have a clue.

Well, my name comes from a song by Yael Naim and yours comes from a song by Jimmy Dean. They are both great songs, but I guess you didn't know mine because it is from THIS century. LOL
