WOW! An Infrastructure Bill.
Congressman Mike Thompson has been going around his district touting the infrastructure bill that was passed in Congress and signed by the President. Now, there is not much argument that the infrastructure in the United States is in need of much repair and replacement. However, in typical Washington fashion the numbers are very interesting to say the least.
The bill that was passed totals $1.2 TRILLION. Sounds like a lot could get done. However, that amount of money that will actually go to infrastructure projects is $550 Billion. If you dig hard enough you will learn that the rest of the money does not go to infrastructure.
Remember: Our government at work!
