Barack Obama on Infrastructure

Today I was listening to POTUS '08 on XM Radio, they were covering a rally for Barack Obama in Texas.

I have finally heard something new from him. Its his ideas for repairing the country's roads and highways.

He pledges 60 Billion dollars over 10 years, so if you break that down, that equates to 6 Billion dollars per year, divide that by 50 states equals 1.2 Billion for each state, that equates to 2 Euclid Corridor projects (200 Million) and 1 Innerbelt project (currently estimated at 850 Million)every year.

But wait there's more:
Divide Ohio's share by 88 counties and that equals to 13.6 million dollars for each county. There roughly 72 cities and towns in Cuyahoga, an equal share would bring in 189,393 dollars per year.

Lakewood's share of $189,393 dollars would be 2 to 3 deep grind and overlays every year. No work on the sewers. Those repairs will be reaching nearly a million dollars per street every year that nothing is accomplished.

There is the Hope and Change America is looking for in 2008.

The only thing I haven't heard yet from Obama or Clinton is that they are going to put 100,000 more cops on the street!

These types of programs are a farce for the election year hype!


Someone from Austin Texas dropped in this youtube clip in the comment section which has nothing to do with my post on the Obama's highway initiative.

Since this clip is on NAFTA, perhaps the Obama supporter can clarify the point that Obama will not really pull out of NAFTA as he stated in the debate in Cleveland last week.
