if you pay taxes in Georgia...

I suggest you go here, click on "Georgia" and examine what the Highway Bill is going to do for YOU! Also observe the price tag on these items.

Then, ask yourself this question: "Do we really NEED that?" if your answer is "yes," then ask yourself another question: "If we really NEED IT, why don't we pay for it ourselves?"

Plus, when did the federal government, which is supposed to build and maintain US HIGHWAYS, get into the business of constructing bike trails and creating "greenscapes" nowhere near a US Highway?

It's pork, and that's where a LOT of your tax money goes.

Read about this idea. I think it's a good one.

Holey poke the dawg, I can't believe some of this shit.

The very top of the Ohio list: "Renovate and expand National Packard Museum and adjacent historic Packard facilies." Huh? What does this do to improve the Interstate highway infrastructure?

Then there are the damn bike paths. Everybody gets a bikepath. Screw that.

I also note in the NY file a bunch of streets that are city streets (familiar to me) that are being improved. This is bullshit. Those are city streets, not federal highways.

Yep, there's a lot of pork and fat that can be trimmed off of this boondoggle.

My "favorite" was the over a million dollars given to Alaska for A BRIDGE TO NOWHERE!

Once Washington has their hand in your pocket, the only reason they will take it out is to move it over to your other pocket.
