“But if the government cuts spending on infrastructure repairs by $10 billion then it looks like it’s saved $10 billion, but really it’s just pushed $10 billion worth of infrastructure repairs into the future — and because the bridges may crumble and the water pipes might break, deferring that $10 billion in spending might mean the government has to spend $20 billion instead.”

Ezra Klein, VOX
