Lawmakers unclear on the concept

Rep. John Boehner: Widen highways for “American families” (updated)

“I think there’s a place for infrastructure, but what kind of infrastructure? Infrastructure to widen highways, to ease congestion for American families? Is it to build some buildings that are necessary?…But if we’re talking about beautification projects, or we’re talking about bike paths, Americans are not going to look very kindly on this.”


I say, Boehner, and other lawmakers like himself, be mandated to ride to the Capitol for a month this summer.

See how quickly safe bike routes are created then, if any of them survive a month of bike commuting in D.C. that is.
