With just weeks remaining before federal funding for road and bridge repair dries up, President Obama will take new executive actions this week to spur infrastructure investment from the private sector, the White House announced Monday.

The president will make the announcement — the details of which are not yet clear — during a speech Thursday in Delaware.

“This is a key part of the president’s year of action,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Monday.

Plenty of money is spent on construction projects. If around here is any indication, most of it is frivolous and/or wastefully done.

Executive actions?

You mean dictate by fiat? Because I don’t recall any part of the constitution saying that such a thing exists.

I know I heard of “Executive Orders”, but that doesn’t allow the spending of money on what a president wants.

Like why are we even letting this term be used like it is a natural part of the government?

Remember one thing RATs, whatever you do is precedent to any Conservative/American destroying
you back just the same. So don't call the MSM bitching and moaning because your
course of actions are 100% unconstitutional. 1% constitutional does not make
the other 99% justified.

All of you tyrants have a rude awakening coming in 2014 and 2016!

“President Obama will take new executive actions this week to spur infrastructure investment from the private sector.”

As with most of what he threatens to do-or rather his sycophants threaten on his behalf-won’t really amount to a popcorn fart.

They smartened up with the sloganeering. No one can say that he didn't act.
