Obama renews call for $50B in
new spending on roads, bridges

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Keith Laing

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/20/2013 1:51:04 PM

President Obama on Wednesday renewed his call for Congress to spend $50 billion to improve the nation´s roads and infrastructure. The proposal is a repackaging of Obama proposals from his 2011 "American Jobs Act" and he previewed it in last week´s State of the Union address. The White House outlined the plan in a press release Wednesday, saying Obama wants to spend $40 billion on “most urgent upgrades” to highways, bridges, public transportation systems and airports. The remaining $10 billion of the plan would go toward

You certainly can´t miss the supreme irony here while he screams and wails about sequestration. I don´t even know what to say anymore about the insanity coming from 0bama.

Obama, you already did that with TARP, didn´t you? Obama, will you be available for the GAO auditors to examine those TARP expenditures next week? Taxpayers need to know that their TARP money went to roads and bridges.

The remaining ten billion would go to the national infrastructure bank where it will be laundered and used to finance Democrats. 2 billion will be used for Mooch´s lobster habit.

The sight of Barry Obama with a chromed shovel, hard hat with presidential seal and mom jeans turns on both Chrissy Matthews and Reggie Love. "We just love it when he pretends to push the shovel into the ground. So Village People."

The President to No Where wants to take us all there.

We need to maintain and improve our infrastructure. Just a couple of questions. How much of it is going to blue states and also how much is going to BHO donors? How was the $50 billion arrived at? Where will the $50 billion come from? Make up a list and send it to the House for line item approval.

These are the things that government is supposed to be doing -- the things that Barry said "you didn´t build". We raise enough revenue to pay for this hundreds of times over. But its all frittered away on social spending, which government should NOT be doing. We tax payers don´t object to paying our "fair share" for roads, when necessary, but to tell us we don´t pay our fair share and we "didn´t build that" when it comes to social spending is a slap in the face.

We´ve all driven by roads and bridges under construction. Maybe 40 to 50 people max (all union) doing the actual work. Maybe Obama thinks we do these things like a 3rd world country. Road gangs building the whole thing with picks, shovels and wheelbarrows. The real winners are unions, equipment, concrete and steel companies (his donors).

There he goes again! ...The dem pols routinely divert taxpayer´s money from their taxpayer entrustd responsibilities of maintaining & upgrading America´s infrastructure, to instead, engrandizing their cronies & pet social manipulation projects. Then, when the infrastructure inevitably breaks down, the dem pols are eager to once again demand raising taxes in order to rebuild the crumbling roads, bridges, etc, ...& sewer system as is the case in KC. Yada, yada, yada, the beat goes on ad nauseum.

This routine dem ploy to raise taxes is their party´s standard circular tax policy, -their modus opperandi over the years, due to their dishonorable, sometimes dishonest, and totally irresponsible misplaced priorities. The dem pols simply ignore their own oaths of office because their priorities for getting elected are skewed from the git/go. America the Beautiful and that for which it stands deserves far better!

If Obe would get his butt out of the clouds and take a real bus trip he would soon learn that road and bridges along with choo choo train rails are not pick and shovel ready jobs.
Let us suggest the one highway from northern to mid Idaho through constricting mountain passes as his moving classroom.
Of course he could try southern Idaho areas too where Bannock county alone has 42 mountain peaks.
If he is lucky he can experience a rock or snow slide along the w ay.

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments. “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. Agents can’t use guns against

The IRS still has not responded to allegations from a former Center for American Progress (CAP) employee that the left-wing think tank coordinates on editorial content with the White House — revelations that could threaten the organization’s nonprofit status. Former ThinkProgress reporter Zaid Jilani wrote a piece this week detailing his experiences working for the liberal blog, which is run by CAP’s 501(c)(4) nonprofit Action Fund, the advocacy arm of White House counselor John Podesta’s think tank. “When I started working at ThinkProgress at the Center for American Progress Action Fund in 2009, I did so because it was an

WASHINGTON — In late December, President Barack Obama´s new legislative affairs team sent him more than a dozen recommendations for ways to improve his strained relations with Capitol Hill. The president responded with a few ideas of his own, including a request for more social events with lawmakers at the White House. It was a surprising suggestion from a president who has done little socializing with lawmakers of either party and has dismissed the notion that sharing a cocktail or a meal with members of Congress is a prescription for easing Washington gridlock. But within weeks, there Obama was, mingling

Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage.
