It's not stupid, it's great and long overdue. What was stupid was for scorched earth McConnell and his cronies to nix Obama's shovel ready infrastructure plan years ago.

But no, it's not stupid.

Nixed? The money was spent. Then Obama laughed about it saying "I guess those jobs werent as shovel ready as we thought."

Want the video of that?

Construction took a nose dive from about 2010 and in the last year has started coming back. Obama's "strengthening" of the US Army Corp put experienced companies out of the bidding pool, put Section 8 contactors in, then they couldn't do the work and went belly up.

State and local governments and the private sector should pick up more of the tab. They are the ones who see more of the direct benefit. Why should taxpayers in Cheyenne, Wyoming be on the hook for the lion's share of the cost of a new bridge crossing the Tombigbee River in Columbus, Mississippi?

Do you really think that's how it works? I wonder how the other repubs on here think about this statement?

That's the whole point of states paying. Wyoming won't be responsible for repairs in Mississippi. The state of Mississippi will be asked to share the burden and any private firms will also be asked.

Someone said there's not a budget. Every state taxes fuel and that tax money is supposed to go on road construction.

Cut the red tape that's holding up our flying cars. Then no need in massive infrastructure spending, the air is already there.

If what you are saying is accurate, why do we need the president to address it at all? If the states are responsible for their own roads, interstates and bridges, why are they all in such poor condition?

Interstates fall into that and their bridges. So the Feds are willing to help pay but states must help. It's a two fold thing. Feds will give states money, states have to pony up, private investors will be asked like the biggest companies in that state. But what that will do is bring jobs to that state. Which could mean income from the taxes for new laborers/workers. Just a theory. I could be completely wrong.
