Here’s Minority Leader Boehner on the stimulus package:
“I think there’s a place for infrastructure, but what kind of infrastructure? Infrastructure to widen highways, to ease congestion for American families? Is it to build some buildings that are necessary?” He stated. “But if we’re talking about beautification projects, or we’re talking about bike paths, Americans are not going to look very kindly on this.”
Who are these Americans anyway, these anti-bike path people? Some of us Americans think it’s downright patriotic to invest in infrastructure that would help ease our dependence on foreign oil. “Infrastructure to widen highways” is surely not the answer to our problems!
