The reason this occurred was the same reason why there are so many unfunded liabilities throughout the government, and that is we keep trying to take from one sector of the government to pay for another. Look at lottery dollars that were earmaked for education as another example.

    I'll be honest, I don't know anything about Transportation Bill, so I'm not going to comment on it. All I will say is that anything that was proposed last year was doomed to failure as it was an election year. There's probably more to it that you are leaving out, but as I said, I don't pay that close attention to Congress to care. I do know that the answer isn't simply to throw more money at the problem, as that has been tried and failed.
    You sound just like those House members who couldn't get a single bill into law for 2 years and think they are doing a good job. Are you worried our infrastructure might not be a good investment? Maybe we should go back to building bridges in Iraq instead.?

    I'm worried that any money spent on said infrastructure will end up costing us far more than the mere 2 trillion dollars, and even then it won't get fixed. Like I said, if the government could maintain infrastructure, then the fund would be so underfunded now would it?

    How can you make a point when you do not have one to be begin with?

    I'm pretty sure that's my point... then again, that isn't to say the government CANT do something. After all, throw enough **** at the wall and something will stick right?

    Who made build the Rocket Engines?

    Who made build the space suits?

    Who made the computers?

    Who wrote the programming?

    Who made the camera that use to broadcast the event?

    The Private Sector did that, not the Government, they just paid for it, and honored contracts, nothing more.

    Private ISPs follow the law, thats what fair means. To the extent that they dont, there should be punishment, not banishment.
