Let me introduce you to a new word liberals are unfamiliar with: Broke.<quoted text>
Why is the GOP blocking any effort that President Obama makes to improve our infrastructure? Because of the scary foreigners? Because they are trying to get people off of welfare? Because they are trying to increase the workforce? What is it, Taliban Ray?
Okay, what does broke mean?
Broke means no money. Broke likely means in debt. Broke means failure.
So why would Republicans object to spending money we don't have? Because what idiot would vote for failure? Well...... a Democrat of course.
But besides that, we have evidence that spending tax dollars on infrastructure has no impact on our financial situation. Check out the Pork Bill, or as DumBama called it, the Stimulus Bill.
You see, the financial success of our country is a simple calculation that the private sector supports the public sector. In other words, people in the private industry create wealth. Some of that wealth is extracted via taxes to support the public sector.
One of the reasons DumBama and the Democrats are such failures at this is because they tried (and are still trying) to do the exact opposite: the public sector supporting the private sector.
Why doesn't this work? Quite simple, because the public sectors has no money. The public sector produces no sellable goods or services. Therefore, the public sector makes no profit.
The public sector depends on profit making entities like the private sector to survive. Is this information privy to Republicans only? Of course not. Even Democrat politicians are not that dumb, but their constituents are.
So once again, Rush is right when he said "Liberals don't measure success by results, liberals measure success by intent." Let me give you an example:
The Golden Gate Bridge is not only a model of American ingenuity, but a landmark as well. It's a beautiful bridge that millions from all over the world come to see. The problem with the bridge? Kooks jump off of it to commit suicide.
Now they want to use 76 million of our dollars to erect a safety net to stop people from jumping off of the bridge. Will that stop people from committing suicides? Of course not, and even the Democrats in charge understand this. But it's a dog and pony show liberal constituents like to see. As Rush said, it doesn't matter if it solves anything, as long as it looks like they care.
So the liberal solution to this problem is to take a beautiful bridge and make it ugly. Invite all kinds of daredevils to jump off into the steel safety net; some of which will become paralyzed or otherwise die in the process, and will place all kinds of liability on the taxpayers of San Francisco. Not to mention all the rescue personnel needed for these clowns plus the maintenance of the safety nets. Will all this money and resources stop one suicide? No, but again, it looks good.
