Americans Want Infrastructure Spending
Posted in the Vina Forum

A recent Gallup poll found that 72 percent of Americans, including a majority of Republicans, support spending federal money to create jobs.
A poll by Gallup asked if you would vote for or against the following:
A Federal government program that would (spend government money) put people to work on urgent infrastructure repairs. 72% of ALL Americans-- repub, dem, and independent-- said 'yes'.
Gallup also asked if people would vote for a Federal jobs creation law (that would spend government money for a program) designed to create more than one million jobs. Again, 72% of people said yes.
As President Obama has said,“Building better roads and schools, that’s not a partisan idea.” Well, it never used to be a partisan idea-- until the president supported it.

No we would rather over spend on Defense and cut taxes and social programs.
We have a plan, it's call "strangle the beast".
EveryOne will be better off, when the better off of us can have more.

CNN Exposes Obama's High-Speed Rail Boondoggle
The Obama Administration has put high-speed rail at the forefront of its infrastructure policies, but in reality it’s a slow-moving target for criticism.“Ask any CEO where they’d rather locate and hire: a country with deteriorating roads and bridges, or one with high-speed rail and Internet; high-tech schools and self-healing power grids,” said the President in his February State of the Union speech. Ostensibly, high speed rail projects have gone forward in the U.S. even though they have shown little-to-no progress to date. It is telling that when the sequester went into effect the Obama Administration canceled White House tours and let go thousands of illegal immigrants instead of revisiting waste such as this.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Drew Griffin should be commended on their reporting of the $12 billion high-speed rail boondoggle. According to Griffin, who interviewed Transportation Secretary Ray Lahood,“so much of the money has been spent really making the old trains go a little bit faster.” How much faster? About 10 minutes faster for an $800 million investment.“I think people like the investments we're making,” responded Secretary Lahood during the interview.“There is so much enthusiasm in America for high speed rail.”

Funny post, Only One.
And I bet that the righties here will take it seriously. Just like most conservatives think that Colbert is a conservative.

Well spoken sir! Only problem is we all know that rebuilding Americas infrastructure will put American workers back to work, will trickle up and out to lift all American workers and will benefit our economy as a whole butt unless we allow the rich to rake the cream off the top their sock -puppets in government won’t let it happen.
Yes it’s what the majority of Americans want so repubicans won’t let it happen.
Pathetic how repubicans don't/won’t propose anything to get the economy going again except to cut all taxes for the rich and then give all the taxes middle class Americans pay to the rich.
Can’t wait for the mid -terms ....

Please give an example of conservatives not wanting work.
It is the dead beat liberal regressives who want other peoples money, not conservatives, you liar!

Republicans offered a counterproposal that would have extended existing highway funding for two years, which the GOP said would give states and the construction industry some certainty about which projects they could go ahead with.
But Democrats said that bill cut too many corners, and they blocked it on a 53-47 vote.
All sides do seem to agree that the federal government should fund infrastructure, but they differ on how to pay for it.

So you know how to copy and paste. Try-- I know it's tough-- to tell us a few things. Such as, why did the the dems say, according to your source, that the repub bill cut too many corners?
Can you do it? In your own words?

But the major point of this topic is simple-- most Americans DO want the government to spend money on infrastructure renovation, and to increase jobs.
This includes repubs.
So you guys ARE the minority.
Because most of us, the Obama non-haters, DO want our government to get involved-- spend money-- for infratructure renovation and job growth.

To bad you are to stupid to figure that out with your little PEA BRAIN HATER MENTALITY!

(1) A person who engages in the same behaviors he condemns others for.
(2) A person who professes certain ideals, but fails to live up to them.
(3) A person who holds other people to higher standards than he holds himself.

Polls also show that the majority of Americans support the legality of same sex marriages:
"Today, in an average of 10 recent polls compiled by Constitution Daily, 52 percent of Americans believe same-sex marriages should be legal, while 42 percent of people didn’t believe in the legality of such unions."
And the vast majority of Americans support background checks for gun buyers.
"Support for universal background checks went across party lines: 89 percent of Republicans and 93 percent of Democrats and independents were in favor, as well as 93 percent of gun households and 85 percent of those living in a household with a member of the National Rifle Association."
But many politicians, repub and some dems, are still against background checks. The rightwing ditto-heads in these blogs are among these extremists.
