Mica: Obama transportation budget road to financial ruin
U.S. Rep. John L. Mica (R-Fla.) released the following statement in response to the Obama Administration’s fiscal year 2013 budget:
“The Obama Administration…released its transportation budget, which follows the same old pattern of spending more and getting less for hard-earned taxpayer dollars.
“The President needs to get behind the Republican transportation bill that accomplishes more with less through significant reforms, including cutting in half the time it takes to complete major infrastructure projects.
“Rather than emphasize more deficit spending, from whatever source, the President’s focus should change to making transportation programs and projects more efficient and cutting the red tape that has left even his transportation stimulus money still stuck in federal coffers. One-third of his infrastructure stimulus money is still in Washington, three years after its passage, but he proposes more. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
“The American Energy & Infrastructure Jobs Act before the House this week establishes a blueprint for job creation, is responsibly paid for, and includes no earmarks, tax increases, or deficit spending. That is the model the President needs to get behind.”
