Biden boasts $27 billion in bridge repair spending

President Biden on Friday announced that his administration will distribute $27 billion to repair or replace 15,000 bridges across the country. The funds will be doled out as part of the bipartisan infrastructure spending Mr. Biden signed into law in November. He said the funds were the largest investment in our nation’s bridges since the creation of the Interstate Highway System in the 1950s. “This is an investment that is going to help connect entire towns and regions to new opportunities,” Mr. Biden said at the White House “With this investment, we’re sending a message to those communities and the people who call them home: You matter.”


It was just a few years ago that Gay Barry and Joey Fingers wasted an ungodly fortune rebuilding Our Crumbling Infrastructure, but we're back at it again because the dollar needs to be destroyed. Meanwhile, bridges and structures built by ancient Romans are still standing.

Unless, of course, the bridge is named after some evil white man like Washington or Lincoln, in which case it will be torn down.

Of which, approx. 27 dollars will go to actual bridge repair, and the rest will go to Dem donors. Just like when Xiden was running the Obama scam where 787 billion shovel ready dollars disappeared.

Yeah. That’ll work. His puppet masters have it all worked out. They can hear the American public now, “So what if he lies about everything daily. So what if the groceries you can actually get are too expensive to buy. So what if gas is 5 dollars a gallon. So what if crapped his pants. So what if Americans are still stranded in Afghanistan. So what if he called most of America racists. So what if he opened the boarded to hoards of dangerous law breakers? He fixed a bridge!!!!!!!” Yeah, that’ll save him.

Biden pledges $27 billion to repair all our crumbling bridges. That amount seems like a rounding error to me. I was living in Northern Nevada in Obama's time and I seem to remember a big orange sign that read "your stimulus dollars at work.' They repaired the same road three times. When they finished the job they put the same sign up and started the job all over again. The unions were happy though. I noticed Biden also included high-speed rail systems in his executive order. That will be good news for California who has spent billions on their high- speed rail system even though they have cancelled their rail system to Fresno.

The unions get the money and kick back a percentage to the DNC in political donations. Any infrastructure repair is simply coincidental.

Maybe someone should ask Joe what happened to the 2009 Recovery Act (Stimulus - $800 million) he was responsible to oversee and account for. He should be in jail for this mismanagement of these funds, instead he stole the election and is still scamming the U.S. You had enough?

Were we NOT spending money on roads and bridges? It's in every transportation bill they've ever passed so it's an ongoing budgetary item - so is this what we normally do anyway, or another added on bonus?

Thank you soooo much, Mister pResident, I love it when my money is spent on something to help citizens five states away. One question, how much of that budget will be used to make signs touting the generosity of the taxpayers and the wise leadership of the US Government? Enough to create two signs for each bridge, hopefully. Maybe they could have a green and orange color scheme for high vis?

An artist has accused Lego of recreating a leather jacket he made for Queer Eye cast-member Antoni Porowski without the artist’s permission, claiming that a toy jacket included in a Lego set based on the Netflix show is a “blatant copy” of his design. James Concannon, whose clothes have been regularly worn by Porowski on the popular program, filed a lawsuit against the Danish toy giant in a Connecticut district court last month. The designer, who is seeking damages, alleges that one of the outfits included in the set for Porowski’s figurine copies “the unique placement, coordination, and arrangement of the individual artistic elements” on the jacket.

Los Angeles’ top prosecutor is under fire for allowing a transgender woman who sexually assaulted a 10-year-old girl as a minor to face a no-jail wrist-slap sentence. Hannah Tubbs, now 26, pleaded guilty to attacking the girl in a women’s bathroom at a Denny’s restaurant in 2014, two weeks before she turned 18, the Los Angeles Times reported. LA District Attorney George Gascón filed charges against Tubbs in early 2020, not long after taking office.

Malik Faisal Akram, from Blackburn in the UK, held four people hostage, including a rabbi, for ten hours at the Congregation Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas, Saturday night. Speaking Saturday after the attack, which ended with the death of Akram in a hail of bullets, FBI Special Agent Matt DeSarno said: 'We do believe from our engaging with this subject that he was singularly focused on one issue, and it was not specifically related to the Jewish community.

It’s official: Democrats are the biggest drama queens on earth. In 2022, Democrats will be faced with a very difficult problem.

By next November, the economy will be a political dry hole for Democrats as it’s very unlikely that inflation will ease, and chances are getting better for the double-whammy of inflation and a slowing economy. Domestically, their agenda is stalled and doesn’t appear to have much chance of getting through the Senate.

Now, despite Joe Biden’s unlikely intentions to run for a second term, Hillary is back again – as if ambition would ever let her leave. Five years younger than Biden, Hillary has no intention of being an old soldier who just fades away. Ever since her college years at Wellesley, she has harbored political ambitions. And when her husband landed in the White House, her dream of becoming the first female president of the United States took serious hold.
