Well if you keep talking about building at the money will come the president Florida today doing just that arguing for more spending on roads and bridges.
But haven't we spent hundreds of billions of dollars on roads and bridges thus far -- between highway tolls and fees state excise taxes federal.
Highway transportation taxes the issue is -- more money going to infrastructure the issue could be what I got -- all the money.
We've already spent and committed to infrastructure.
The daily -- stated in my state and former democratic congress and Dennis Kucinich here to sort this out guys in the U -- If I could -- -- every time I heard politicians talk about the infrastructure and a lot of times we could build.
The bridge to office -- -- but -- and all the money that we you already committed.
Keep in mind.
That America has two trillion dollars and more of infrastructure needs -- have been -- we if he.
Rebuilding infrastructure is -- camera and a symbol rewards -- -- we've always had my eye and I wanted to -- lessons I I agree with you when you went on the whole list okay.
But just imagine if on top of that people started to have to pay tolls to private operators which frankly is what the Obama administration is advancing in their planned for an -- Construct a no I understand that and you're not a fan and I'm -- be part from your democratic -- -- but I just wanted to ask is what the hell out of all the money.
We committed to this already so that's what words you have committing good money after bad money.
But the essence of public works retired by an infrastructure you know and build a bridge.
-- water systems sources and sometimes you have to Phil hall so and sometimes that money goes -- there however.
We need -- for commerce the problem is supposed that we're providing tax breaks to foreign interest to buy US infrastructure appears that's frankly what this.
Latest proposal by the administration sets the stage for that's a problem for US sovereign so that would not be a -- that would compound the disease well look you remember their proposal.
Some ports through Dubai interest moderate growth 67 years ago.
And that you did what you gonna for an interest operating airports I don't think so we have to protect our sovereignty and we've got to be careful that.
In this right race to try to get more money from the private sector.
That we don't throw America's sovereignty out the window number one number two people already pay for the infrastructure once why should I have to pay for dissect.
Well does it help when -- that's what a lot of focus already whenever they did a nefarious.
Means by which this money could be blown away in the future maybe do all sorts of bad folks.
I just wonder like this whole lock box issue comes up again if you're committing money to helping.
-- build roads and bridges and repair bottles -- the -- and and that lockbox.
Apparently isn't locked and I suspect there is in a box.
Then it behooves you to make sure you find one before you commit more money to do just.
Doesn't right and I think the other important point is to remember -- This -- president -- when he gave his speech today in Miami.
He was talking as if this is gonna have instant job creation by about committing these -- but if you remember back in 2009 with all of a shovel ready projects.
-- -- they didn't materialize so quickly because worthy projects infrastructure projects don't -- there overnight it takes time.
Once you have government says they're gonna commit funds to create them so this idea that this -- these funds that he's committing are going to be a huge stimulus.
And create many jobs from the beginning.
Seems to be a stretch just like it was in 2009.
Salt what the monies that we've committed to ours.
I guess that's just gone whatever happened it's gone just -- just a fraction with the needs and number one.
It was a -- -- -- we've raised over the wells and I don't attributes -- we have not invested appropriately.
Chats are fortunate that carry trade you know that's why we raise that money chairman blown away but it did we have raised that money we raised the money.
Chairman Oberstar proposal put hundreds of billions of dollars to rebuild the infrastructure the Obama administration shelved it.
This is what the Democrats were in control we we have a problem here where we have to be serious about America's commerce.
About recognizing that if everyone benefits from this and everyone ought to pay that we're already paying taxes you said people are paying gas -- another user's fees.
I don't want to see people have to pay for -- again.
Do we need to rebuild infrastructure yes I talked about mechanism by which we can do -- we shouldn't have to borrow money from China from.
Japan or South Korea to do -- we need to invest in our own country -- this is about America.
Well I understand we garner and I think it's a viewer more -- you know but before we -- investing and we've got to make sure that we there is a way to keep track of what we're investing -- -- the -- learned that.
We could be doing good money after bad if we go blue route the president suggesting.
Others are just saying when you talk about infrastructure roads and bridges there was -- -- -- has to be prepared us to be fixed but invariably that money doesn't go.
-- you were road to your bridge to your whatever it just doesn't go there and I and that's what we've got.
Gets in the bottom of them.
Or or it goes to the bridge to nowhere which is not a -- infrastructure project.
It's also interesting that the president -- say how he was gonna pay for these projects today.
I think what he proposed with something in 21 billion dollars in new funding to go with another forty billion dollars and other infrastructure funding they'll come out his budget.
And they keep saying oh look at wait till the April budget comes out and we'll show you how it's funded so it would be nice to see where the president is getting the money for the -- infrastructure projects.
-- -- and I don't wanna switch gears to Google we just got this in this elastic artisans in young.
Has issued an apology for the -- back comment you probably heard that John Boehner told to apologize and he did and I'm quoting here.
I apologize of the -- to determine his during an interview.
-- -- -- Alaska there was no malice samarra -- intend to -- it was a poor choice of words.
Yeah I I think congressman young.
-- -- done the right thing.
And in apologizing.
And that it just teaches all of us a lesson about.
Respecting me each other and I know congressman young music he's got a good heart and I think that he realizes he misspoke -- he.
Very wisely corrected the record because I want to thank you both -- people -- top of all of those developments secluded.
