Obama unveiled the first portion of a six-year federal infrastructure building program that would improve the nation’s roads, railways and runways. The first portion of the plan, according to the White House, would cost $50 billion. Under the plan, 150,000 miles of road, 40,000 miles or rail line and 150 miles of airport runways will be rebuilt or repaired.
Politically, the infrastructure plan will not likely be enough to stop the bleeding for Democrats ahead of November’s midterm elections. The spending would not be rolled out until next year, if lawmakers pass the measure. However, Democrats are hoping that the public takes notice of the serious effort on the part of Democrats to create jobs.

They are pushing/selling this as an infrastructure plan. They used the same shovel ready rhetoric to push the first stimulus and we still have seen very little from it except new signs posted along routine construction zones that had been in the works long before the Obama stimulus.

That part of the economy used to be call our industrial base, the bread and butter of the working middle class and what help build this nation to greatness, now is all gone.

Sorry, but have to ask:
Who is more stupid- the administration for doing what they are doing or the people that believe in the administration's actions?
Either or, does it really matter now?
