Over at Wonkblog today they are bleating the infrastructure canard again. Two points, without dissecting the whole thing.
1. Can someone, somewhere, who is actually a real journalist, show us how much of the highway trust fund has been siphoned off for non-highway related stuff? How much of this has been funneled to municipal and state slush funds for construction groups and special green advocates of light rail and other non-highway related things?
2. I am TOTALLY on board with the following chart and sentiment. The piece is worried that “the trust fund will run out.” OK, great. I look forward to the next series of articles on, say, Social Security and Medicare.
