Finally!

This could have happened months ago. It was too late to help Democrats who lost their elections last Tuesday. It's months less time for Biden to recover his poll numbers. It was also months less time that construction workers and others will benefit from infrastructure employment. It's delayed for months the benefits that cities, commuters and others will enjoy.

(WaPo)House lawmakers late Friday adopted a roughly $1.2 trillion measure to improve the country’s roads, bridges, pipes, ports and Internet connections, overcoming their own internecine divides to secure a long-sought burst in federal investment and deliver President Biden a major legislative win.

The bipartisan 228-to-206 vote marked the final milestone for the first of two pieces in the president’s sprawling economic agenda. The outcome sends to Biden’s desk an initiative that promises to deliver its benefits to all 50 states, a manifestation of his 2020 campaign pledge to rejuvenate the economy in the aftermath of the coronavirus and “build back better.”

    Finally, indeed, Curt.

    This is a classic bipartisan Bill that passed in the Senate with 69 votes and could have passed in the House had Joe, and Nancy and the Squad et.al., not attempted to link its passage with the Reconciliation aka BBB bill.

    The high drama continues over what will happen with the so called 1.75 trillion BBB Bill.

    The highly respected Wharton School of Business suggests that the cost of the Bill is a stitch under 4 trillion.

    As an antiSwamper, I'm hoping that House Dem moderates do vote for it. Can you say a 260 GOP House after the 022 election?

    In any event, we haven't seen this much DC drama since the Dems foisted OCare on an outraged electorate in 010.

    Pfft. $1.2 trillion over 10 years is a measely $102 billion a year. We spend over 7 times that a year on so called "defense".

    OTOH, with this Congress, I'm surprised they spent a dime.

    Donna,

    You're a big one for having people spend THEIR money on YOU, eh?

    You'll be happy to know that Fox is as chagrined about it as you are.

    I'm more worried about millions of others who despite their efforts are finding it increasingly difficult to stay above water financially.

    According to that amazing jobs report, more than 100 million are not in the labor force.

    There have to be answers more effective than increasing exponentially the size of the dole.

    Why would that be a bad thing? It seems to me that improving the lives of millions of people is a hallmark of a modern, civilized society. The rest of the free has understood that for many years.

    The rest of the free world, that is.


  8. by HatetheSwamp on November 6, 2021 8:47 am

    The rest of the "free" world is being sibsidized by our much freer economy. Ain't!!!!!?

    Right - it ain't.
