DOT May Have it’s Day

Did I hear President Obama right this week?

“Our infrastructure used to be the best, but our lead has slipped,” Obama said, referencing the infrastructure boom in Europe and parts of Asia including China. “Meanwhile, when our own engineers graded our nation’s infrastructure, they gave us a ‘D.’ We have to do better.”

Part of President Obama’s speech was dedicated to infrastructure and he also included a nod to roadway and bridge investments as way to improve the economy.

“We’ll put more Americans to work repairing crumbling roads and bridges. We’ll make sure this is fully paid for, attract private investment, and pick projects based on what’s best for the economy, not politicians,” he said.

I am sure that Mr Lahood was standing up and gleeming with excitement over that speech.

Down the Road – Mike
