    I don’t think even republicans have a problem with the “roads and bridges” portion of the bill. It’s only 6% of the cost. The broader definition of “infrastructure” would put that number at 25-30% of the bill’s cost. It’s the non-infrastructure stuff that has jacked up the overall spending that would result from the bill. Even some dems are expressing concern.

    Also like the irony of pilgrims on their way tyo a holy place going off the road and all dying… both believe in magical thinking!

    The GQP is always willing to sacrifice their constituents for the sake of the party over country.

    Gov. Kristi Noem, S. Dak., is angry that the infrastructure bill gives money to Amtrak because Amtrak does not have plans to spend it in Hawai’i, Alaska or S. Dak. Currently, there is no Amtrak service in S. Dak, Hawai’i or Alaska. There never was. Amtrak is a corporation which decides, for itself where to spend its money. Amtrak has said that they are open to suggestions and requests for extending nd/or adding lines. If profitable (they are a corporation) Noem or her surrogates could request service in S. Dak. It has been many years since I was stationed in Hawai’i. From what I remember, I don’t think commuter trains would work well there. (Maybe she just wants to ride a train from San Diego to Hilo) I get the feeling that Alaska would also present problems.

    Anything for outrage…

    The GQP has a habit of going over the cliff, off the rails and other chaotic circumstances. Must be their driver….

    They’d just blame it on “Antifa”…

    Ironically, this made me remember another protest rally bus trip a few years ago. I don’t remember the rally cause anymore, other than it was one about local infrastructure problems and was doubling as a midterm election campaign stop. What I do remember is that reporters were interviewing locals, who sounded like they knew about the issue… and they interviewed people with MAGA hats, who didn’t sound like they knew much about the local issue but complained about “they’re bussing outsiders in to spread their talking points”… the reporters showed those same MAGA hats boarding buses (with out-of-state license plates) after the rally was over… the type of irony that is lost on the GQP…

    Spending on infrastructure work does not benefit the very rich as much as defense spending, so therefore they are against it.

    The GQP likes to drive the country down and backwards at he same time. That keeps their people energized. They like living in the 50’s. The 21st century is way too inclusive for them.

    That WOULD be ironic. Too bad it didn’t actually happen.

    The Senate parliamentarian says dems can pass more bills without the republicans.

    Strange, during the whole time Trump was president, Congress never once addressed infrastructure spending. In fact, the democrats lead by pelosi and schumer, just worried about whether or not Russia colluded with Trump to win the election instead of working on real legislation.

    Saw an article this morning, saying Judge Thomas is muttering that Twitter and Facebook should be regulated as infrastructure utilities. So just a few years ago, the GOP was arguing that the actual wires the internet travels on can’t be regulated as utilities, now they’re saying some applications (of many) on it have to be? Talk about people unclear on the concept of what “infrastructure” is.
