Posted on 05/14/2014 10:24:38 AM PDT by Nachum
In November 2008 after the presidential election Barack Obama promised to fix Americas crumbling roads and bridges with his trillion dollar Keynesian stimulus plan.
It never happened.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
He’s ‘Recycling’.........................gotta stay green ya know.................
Next week a revisit of the vacuous “focusing like a laser on the economy” in preparation for “recovery summer version #6”.
what benefit did we get from Porkulus?
As I recall, Obama said it was an emergency which required Porkulus to be passed quickly. He had been president less than a month when he signed Porkulus into law.
I think we should review what benefit we got from that law, before we run off and do something similar.
I live in NY. Brain-dead leftist voters, many of whom are connected to the public unions absolutely LOVE this stuff. Besides “crumbling bridges” the other favorite slogan is how “kids” are suffering due to “cutbacks in education.”
More “shovel ready” S**t?
Another appeal for union loot.
Wonder if he knows what gas taxes are for oh wait it goes into the general fund foe squandering.
What about Shuttered Mills? Does he say anything this time about Shuttered Mills? I remember back in 2008 he bemoaned all the Shuttered Mills. I’m just wondering if any are still Shuttered, after all this Obamatime.
Its springtime, can’t he focus on green shoots?
I was still thinking he had his laser focus on jobs. And climate change and immigration.
I thought that trillion dollar pork bill was used for all those shovel ready infrastructure jobs. At least that is what he said that time.
If he’s recycling his old ideas, then that means he has no new ones to show..........................
Might as well call for “Recovery Summer”.
You got the money for this already, idiot!
Even Hollywood would be embarrassed by this remake.
Speaking of “crumbling roads and bridges”, remember “you didn’t build that”?
The decay of the infrastructure is caused by shortsighted politicians and government bureaucrats who don't allow for the destructive effects of inflation on the replacement costs of the assets they manage.As inflation pours new and additional revenues into their hands, they proceed as though the revenues were available for the expansion of government activities, and neglect the need to devote an adequate portion of them to replacement and maintenance at progressively rising prices.The result is decaying water and sewage systems, subway and rail lines, and bridges and tunnels, as well as decaying roads and highways.
And since libtards are responsible for the nexus of inflation and Keynesian government budget deficit spending, they are responsible for another perversity of result, where they end up hurting the people they are trying to help.
