    No official documents in the gazillion dollar Obama Library. One might think that’s odd but it’s not. Obambi is just trying to cover his legacy butt and stay out of prison. It’s very easy to fix computerized history. Fraudulent Fake...

    Bu bu bu but I thought Obambi’s super duper infrastructure multi-billion-dollar project took care of all that. What do ya mean solar panels, windmills and hiway beautification... That sounds like a money giveaway to campaign donors. That can’t be can it...

    Re: President Obama

    ^^^ “Shovel Ready Jobs” - it was all a part of the great stimulus plan.

    Better contact the ShitFly for an explanation.

    Re: President Obama

    still whining about obama. trump's statement has a whole page at politifacts on it.

    Donald Trump's skewed portrayal of Obama's stimulus

    "You know, there was a very large infrastructure bill that was approved during the Obama administration, a trillion dollars," Trump said. "Nobody ever saw anything being built. I mean, to this day, I haven't heard of anything that's been built. They used most of that money on social programs, and we want this to be on infrastructure."
    The "shovel-ready" aspects of the stimulus tended to attract the most attention. But officially, that was only one of the act’s goals, and if you look closely at how the funds were allocated, only a fraction of the total was ever intended to go to infrastructure.

    According to the Council of Economic Advisers’ final report to Congress on the stimulus, which was current through February 2014, about 35 percent of the expenditures went for tax cuts for individuals and businesses; about 18 percent went for aid to cash-strapped state governments to offset cuts to health and education programs; and about 14 percent went for "safety net" expenditures paid to individual Americans, such as added unemployment payments.

    That leaves 34 percent of expenditures going to "public investment" -- hardly a trivial amount in an $804.6 billion bill, but still a distinct minority of the total outlay. And the amount actually spent on metal-and-concrete infrastructure was even smaller than that, since the "public investment" category also covers spending on such things as Pell grants, education for disabled students and scientific research.

    Michael Grabell, a journalist with the investigative project ProPublica, wrote a book, Money Well Spent? The Truth Behind the Trillion-Dollar Stimulus, the Biggest Economic Recovery Plan in History. In his book, Grabell estimated that only about $80 billion, or roughly one-tenth of the act’s spending, was devoted to what people would normally think of as "infrastructure," and of that, only about $27 billion was spent specifically on roads and bridges.

    So roads and bridges accounted for just over 3 percent of all spending under the act.
    "The notion that the New Deal built bridges and dams while all the stimulus did was fill potholes isn't entirely true," Grabell wrote in his book. "Generations from now, there will be countless projects that communities can point to as the enduring legacy of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The $80 billion for roads, runways, waterworks, rails, federal buildings, and parks was one of the largest investments in the nation's infrastructure since President Eisenhower established the Interstate Highway System in the 1950s."

    Just to cite a few of the bigger projects, the Recovery Act helped push to completion the $1 billion DFW Connector highway in Dallas-Fort Worth; a $650 million elevated truck route to the Port of Tampa; a new Cleveland Innerbelt Bridge; a tunnel connecting Oakland and Contra Costa County, Calif.; new light rail lines in Salt Lake City and Dallas; a courthouse in Austin; a hospital at Camp Pendleton in California; a veterans' facility at Fort Bliss in Texas; and new headquarters for the Department of Homeland Security and the Coast Guard. And the list of projects funded by the act runs to nine pages in his book, even though that’s just a partial accounting.
    The US will need to invest more than $4.5 trillion by 2025 to fix its failing infrastructure

    More than 500 infrastructure projects are pitched to Trump, who will favor private money and speed

    Much like Franklin Roosevelt and Barack Obama, Trump also has mentioned construction building projects as a catalyst to create jobs. "The only way the president is going to create the millions of high paying jobs for blue collar workers is through infrastructure," said Slane.

    Therein lies the problem with your idol, Obambi. Ya see, he told us it was for infrastructure and was lying through his teeth from the outset, just like with Obamacare, Fast and Furious, Benghazi, etc., etc.

    Citing examples where the plan "helped push to completion" is rubbish. Its no better (or different) than saying the Clinton Foundation helped Haiti rebuild.

    Let's not forget Solyndra.

    Re: President Obama

    Another aspect I don't recall seeing discussed much was the impact the ARRA had on costs. The bulk of our stuff heads to water and wastewater treatments plants, the vast bulk of those public facilities. Internally we spent thousands of hours between dissecting the (often ambiguous) guidance from the EPA (the outfit in charge of interpreting and enforcing ARRA in the water arena), creating procedures to ensure compliance, and following those procedures on subsequent jobs. As a crude estimate, it probably added about 5% - 10% to our internal hours. Then there was the impact on our suppliers, who had to comply with the documentation we created to ensure compliance with the act. Also a crude estimate, this added about 5% to our costs for products affected by the act.

    Municipalities got the same equipment, but paid more for it.

    Since ARRA went away, we're now left with AIS. It's another cluster of ambiguous guidance, and unlike ARRA, it has no end in site.

    I'm reminded of the old story of Milton Friedman seeing workers in Asia digging a canal with shovels as opposed to modern excavating equipment. Told it was a "jobs program", he asked, "then why not give them spoons?"

    The final results may be the same, and the "regulations" certainly result in more employment here, but to what end? Is it *really* to our benefit that equipment costs more when that added cost is little more than paper pushing? Personally I'd prefer the paper pushers thrust into the process find other productive pursuits. . .

    Rep. Kennedy slams 'bullies' in response to Trump's State of the Union

    “BULLIES” get real is that the best you can do. The Kennedy name still carries mystique and power in Democratic Party circles. Nothing new the same old BS we had with Obambi for 8 years. Like Obambi the democrats are hoping MSM can piggyback him to the White House... Fake ... lacks reality...

    Kennedy +3...

    The Obama/Clinton democrats are in trouble everywhere you look. Memo, DACA, Chain Migration, immigration lottery, booming economy, tax cuts. Lowest ever unemployment for blacks and Hispanics. Most importantly the DNC is very short on cash... Turnout The Lights The Party is Over...
