Governments are not supposed to sit on large amounts of cash. For large capital expenses they borrow the money (bond measures) so that the people getting the benefits of the expense are the ones paying for it. Otherwise you have today's people paying extra for something they may never get the benefit of, which is not very easy to sell.
