    Only 1.7% of people in Canada have received the 2nd dose due to a severe vaccine shortage in Canada.

    I guess we are lucky that the vaccine is up to 90% effective even after the first dose.

    If Only 6% of Biden's Infrastructure Bill Is for Infrastructure, What's the Other 94% For?

    President Joe Biden’s next major legislative push is on infrastructure, but his proposed $2 trillion plan might be more fluff than concrete.
    A recent analysis from Fox News determined that less than $750 billion actually goes towards what is typically considered infrastructure, like roads and bridges.

    The aforementioned total includes $115 billion to “modernize” roads and bridges that need repair and $80 billion to expand and conduct maintenance for Amtrak, Fox News reported.
    By this estimate, it means that only around six percent of “The American Jobs Plan” truly fulfills its advertised purpose.

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy criticized the plan as a waste of taxpayer dollars.
    “Not an April Fools joke: President Biden’s so-called ‘infrastructure’ plan spends less than 6% to repair bridges, highways, and roads,” the high-ranking Republican tweeted last week.

    Not an April Fools joke: President Biden’s so-called "infrastructure" plan spends less than 6% to repair bridges, highways, and roads.



    So what does the other 94 percent cover?
    With the administration using the term “care infrastructure,” it includes billions for the elderly and disabled, scientific research and development and expanding broadband internet access.
    Biden hopes that Congress will also approve $174 billion in electric car subsidies in hopes to increase EV chargers nationwide and convert a percentage of public transportation to electric.

    The biggest winner of all? Unions.
    Yes, after Biden betrayed the blue-collar labor unions after the cancellation of the Keystone XL Pipeline, he is hoping to make amends with the group.

    He has proposed that $400 billion will go towards union jobs, but critics are skeptical that this will go against his green energy plans, according to Politico.
    While Biden loves to pretend that he is a bipartisan leader, his spending dreams are going to be a turnoff to any Republican support.
    As it is considered one of the most basic functions of government, infrastructure should be one of the issues where conservatives and liberals can unite, and Biden is even failing at that pursuit.

    His somewhat contradictory union support seems to be an attempt to swoon West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin, a swing vote who does not always vote with the rest of his caucus.
    The United States has spent trillions in recent months on coronavirus relief, and the national debt is only getting higher.

    While Republicans only become debt hawks when the presidential administration is the opposite party, they need to kick that mentality into high gear.
    Improving infrastructure is a significant way to better the nation, and unrelated spending is not going to help effectively reach that goal.

    While the Fed is printing money that we can't afford, interest rates keep going up making it hard for Americans to afford high priced items such as: Housing - Automobiles - House Repairs. Something we DO NOT need after coming out of the Plandemic!

    I see you're still in denial on the poor job that Trudeau has done on the rollout. Tell us, where does Canada rank in the world on vaccinations? Where does the USA rank?


    We've been here before with you refusal to criticize. Oh, well....I tried to present the facts.

    You really have to admit he's doing a much better job.

    I ask you a couple of questions. How about answering them?


    Where do Canada and the USA rank on vaccinations?

    he wouldn't have been able to do shit if Trump hadn't started that ball rolling.

    hell Biden AND Kneepads got their shots before ever taking office.

    The virus was found in the USA 1/21/20

    Trump was on top of it and had PRIVATE industry turning out: Test kits - PPE's and the vax.

    Biden took over after the shots were being given.

    What IF Biden had to do all of that? Obama/Biden sat on their thumbs for SIX MONTHS before even trying to do anything about the Swine Flu.

    Senile old Joe couldn't have gotten anything going until 1/20/21 when he took office. But the vaccine making/distribution was on target in 11/1/20.

    yup Biden is/was/will always be a flunky.

    he can't even keep his fucking mutts from shitting on the WH floors .. remember TWO federal employees had to receive medical treatment from Major's bites.

    Jill put stupid shit all over the WH Lawn for Valentines day... Melania had the most beautiful CHRISTmas decorations in/outside the White house I've seen in DECADES.

    "He's the smartest man I know " Biden said about his crack smoking - stripper fucking - laptop losing - baby making - Adulterer ( yeah remember Beau's wife that he was sleeping with? )

    Just step out on your balcony and let both barrels loose. ( that suggestion IS illegal in just about EVERY residential area in the USA... Ask the guy that got arrested for taking Joe's 'advice' about his shotgun.)
