    I love President Obama.

    He's taking pages out of the books of President F.D. Roosevelt's Hoover Dam and Tennessee Valley Authority projects, President Truman's Marshall Plan, and President Eisenhower's Interstate Highwaay System program.

    Infrastructure is a fundamental investment in prosperity for all.

    You're getting dangerously close to being a liberal parody.
    GAMRican is already an EXTREMIST LIBERAL HEN so why would it be dangerous for himicon_question.gificon_lol.gif

    As for infrastructure funding. It should be put into federal law that this funding is to be used only for repair and reconstruction of existing infrastructure. It should not be used for wasteful, unneeded, pork barrel projects like that extension of I-69 from Indianapolis to Laredo commonly dubbed the NAFTA superhighway. That new superhighway is definitely not needed. Focus on existing infrastructure because there is a lot of major repairs and reconstruction that is sorely needed throughout much of the US.
