    What are you talking about?

    If this funding dries up and the interstate system falls apart, you just broke a economic backbone.

    Half the states in the South and Midwest can't pay their own bills without federal money, how the hell will they maintain a highway system without the feds?

    Wow, Congress is really doing everything it can to destroy this country.


    Our crumbling infrastructure will lead to the downfall of the american empire. Can't compete on the world market when your infrastructure is so trashed that companies no longer want to do business here.

    You kids seem don't remember the Reagan Administration wanted the drinking age moved from 18 to 21 during the mid 80's. This was the big stick that really woke up the American people to the extortion over States rights.

    Well dur, Republicans hate America.

    They hate the poor
    They hate the working class
    They hate the working class
    They hate fair tax codes
    They hate the idea of cutting the bloated military budget
    They hate the idea of anyone else being in charge
    They hate women
    They hate having roads and bridges that...work

    They hate America

    Yes, and I don't agree that highway funding is a way to extort states.

    Esp when we consider the entire middle and most of the Deep south with a couple expections, can't pay their own bills without the feds, they should be grateful to the Feds and the taxpayers from wealthy states

    They love the working class: they just want them to stay working class.
