The Tea Party, on the other hand, doesn't want to tax foreign earnings at all, according to Delaney.
Delaney said last week he hopes the pending insolvency of the U.S. Highway Trust Fund will be an added incentive to get Congress to focus on his legislation. The fund pays for "90% of the transportation projects in the country," according to Delaney.
"What I'm saying is let's take the support of my bill and do something even bigger: not only to create the infrastructure bank that I want to create but also to prefund the highway trust fund for six years."
