The Post Turtle is not interested in helping the rest of us - he is only interested in making sure that he has as much power as possible and carries America as far from capitalism as possible.

It's also about feeding and growing a federal slush fund the democrats can dole out how ever they wish.
President Obama has been on a blitz while pushing what seems to be an evergreen priority for Democrats these days: "infrastructure investment." In his State of the Union speech, President Obama spoke of Merica's "deteriorating roads and bridges" and proposed what he called a "Fix-It-First" program that would see the government hire construction workers to work on America's infrastructure.

This worry is overblown. The Reason Foundation put out a report this week that found America's infrastructure is in fine shape, though there's certainly work to be done.
