Federal transportation money is pervasive throughout the entire system. You can get 80% federal funding to replace an existing bridge on some BFE gravel road. It doesn't have to be an interstate. Most states, counties and townships fund their bridges that way.

You can get federal funding to redo an intersection. Look up CMAQ funds for example.

Once there is a single federal dollar in a project, the whole project, design and construction, has to follow the federal process. It is burdensome.

Even if you don't have federal money in a project, you might still be talking to the Army Corps or Fish and Wildlife to get permits.

I'm not justifying it. Heck, I don't agree with it. But this IS today.

it would scare folks that don't pay attention to how local fed funding is misspent....

the funding for bike trails and such is a fk'n joke....

this is why infrastructure funding has to be completely revamped with restrictions and oversight....

I'm not holding my breath the dipshites get it right.....

You know before 2015 we didn't have net neutrality. I don't remember any issues, why in 2018 all of a sudden will it be issues?

You mean like these examples.

I stand corrected. But again I don't recall having any issues. I don't recall my internet being throttled I really haven't seen much difference.

And now reading the article it's only talking about Netflix and Bit torrent. Not what you stated about using search engines, etc. So your argument is you won't be able to watch 20 hours of Breaking Bad at a time or download Illegal music.

My argument is that if we allow them to start. Then they will never stop. So why let them start.

So let me get this straight. Internet is a utility cause you'll need it for everything, but now it'll be "restricted" because of net neutrality. I explained that not everyone has it and fiber was ran a mile from my parents and stopped and they don't have it, however thanks to the repeal they'll probably have it pulled now.

Then you've said that they'll restrict it and likened to the power company dimming my lights. I've explained how it'll open up speeds and offer packages. You've stated it's not fair, and I said I wasn't all for everyone paying the same price for the same apeed. I was a called a fool.

Now you're claiming they'll sell out and tell you what sites you can and can't go to. Your examples are three articles talking about Netflix and Bit Torrent. But you're saying it won't stop there.

Dude. If anyone is a fool it's you Chicken Little. Me thinks you want everyone to have the same and it scares you that your neighbor may have faster and better than you for cheaper and he'll be able watch more movies than you.
