The measures include the “establishment of an Infrastructure Bank to leverage federal dollars and focus on investments of national and regional significance that often fall through the cracksMore spending, and more big government -- that's the Obama and Democratic answer to any question. In this case the question is: what can we do to pretend that we are helping the economy and creating jobs to avoid crushing defeat in November? GOP members of Congress should do everything possible to defeat or delay this latest waste of money, much of which will no doubt be funneled to Democratic special interests such as unions.

Surprise! Obama Wants More Spending
The president is calling for "$50 billion to kick off a new infrastructure plan designed to expand and renew the nation’s roads, railways and runways." Where have we heard this before? Oh yeah, the so-called stimulus that was billed as an investment in infrastructure but turned out to be a gigantic pork giveaway. But this $50 billion will really be used to improve our infrastructure. No, really. And guess what, it even includes a new federal agency.
