What?! Matt Gaetz is a terrible human? I would have never guessed it...
So this Infrastructure Bill is going to be interesting. I like the public transit funding concept, but hopefully it will require that we look at future solutions, not just funding the old broke solutions. And there are big numbers with vague details. I am very interested to see those details, because what could be a good bill, is looking more and more like an attempt to push social policy along with investment in infrastructure... which is going to make the infrastructure bill harder to actually get adopted.
I personally think the infrastructure part of this is terrific and I think that the course of action to make it happen is not unreasonable. I do think that in addition to increased taxes in some sectors, I also think that they need to cut a lot of the wasteful things that are being funded right now. I would love to see a greater focus on alternative transportation options such as train, hyperloop, electric charging station installations, and improved utilities.
