Sorry, Joe: Fixing Roads and Bridges Doesn’t Cost $2 Trillion

“The Biden White House is furiously trying to cajole congressional Republicans into signing off on his $2 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’ So far, they’ve held firm in saying not just no but ‘hell, no!’ to new taxes and spending to pay for all this. It turns out that a bill to fix our roads and bridges, modernize our water and sewer systems, and upgrade ports and airports doesn’t require $1 of new spending. … If we take out the $1 trillion-plus spending in the Biden plan for fake infrastructure (the deluge of subsidies for wind, solar and electric vehicle manufacturers) then it’s easy to pay for road repairs and fixing bridges, and modernizing internet access services with about $600 billion.” (06/08/21)
