Brother, can you spare part of a dime?

Denver is among cities across the U.S. mulling a ballot/tax measure for more transit.  Hard to believe how long it can take to raise the funds needed for developing a complete light rail system. Makes you wonder–if it would take seven years to build light rail there with a 0.4 percent bump in sales tax, could you do it twice as more quickly with a slightly higher sales tax and a bump on gas taxes, which (at least in Texas) haven’t moved in years.
