After Burning Political Bridges, Biden Hopes for Win w/ Infrastructure Project

(Headline USA) On the heels of several resounding defeats that have hightened partisan divisions as the result of the Left’s political brinksmanship, the Biden administration hopes to deflect from its failures with a bipartisan win on infrastructure.

The Transportation Department is launching a $27 billion program to repair and upgrade roughly 15,000 highway bridges as part of the infrastructure law approved in November. The effort is being announced Friday as President Joe Biden tries to showcase how his policies are delivering for the public. That would be versus virtually every divisive word the angry old man has spewed in his last two major speeches, which have done little to bring the nation together as Biden had promised.

Under the five-year program, the federal government will release nearly $5.5 billion this fiscal year to states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia and tribes, according to senior administration officials who insisted on anonymity to preview the plans.

Biden plans to speak Friday about progress made in implementing the $1 trillion infrastructure package in the two months since he signed it into law. It’s an opportunity for a president whose floundering economic policies have delivered nothing but inflation and scarcity of consumer goods and his leftist takeover of elections under the guise of “voting rights” have been crushed in the Senate, to show that his administration is working to make lives better.

The White House issued a fact sheet in advance of Biden’s remarks that details how the administration is preparing to distribute infrastructure funds, and it reads like a woke wish list. There are plans to build out 500,000 charging stations for electric vehicles. The Transportation Department has announced the distribution of roughly $56 billion to improve highways, airports and shipping ports, part and parcel of the administration’s goal to bolster tree equity and eliminate racist highways.

The Environmental Protection Agency has announced plans to disburse $7.4 billion to upgrade water and sewer systems. Steps are also being taken to build out broadband internet, among other initiatives.
