Biden and Buttigieg have been trying to sell their “infrastructure” plan by talking about all the roads, and bridges they want to repair. Much the same as Obama claimed that he wanted to repair all the roads and bridges.
Oddly, or not so oddly, the roads and bridges never get repaired. Maybe that’s because that amounts to only about 5% of Biden’s $2 trillion whopper.
Just $115 billion, or roughly 5.6% of total spending, would go toward modernizing 20,000 miles of highways, roads and main streets that are “in most critical need of repair,” as well as repairing the most “economic significant large bridges” and roughly 10,000 smaller bridges, according to a fact sheet released by the White House.
Meanwhile, a whole lot more is going to the electric car industry. Specifically, $174 billion.
Biden’s infrastructure plan spends a whole lot more on lefty electric car industries than on fixing all the roads he claims to want to repair.
