Real infrastructure overlooked in Biden spending spree

 Washington Examiner:

...

...  while President Joe Biden released his $2.25 trillion infrastructure plan, the American Jobs Plan, back in March, the vast majority of the funds are earmarked for things not traditionally considered infrastructure. Less than 5% of the total funding is allocated for traditional road and bridge projects. Debates over the plan's merits have centered on what should be defined as infrastructure. Proponents of the bill have argued that child care and broadband, among other things, deserve to be considered infrastructure for today’s economy.

That debate about semantics is a distraction.

The real issue isn’t whether child care is important or not (of course, it is) but whether traditional infrastructure needs are being short-changed as we expand infrastructure’s definition. After the events of the last week, it’s clear we need to do more to protect our oil and gas pipelines. It is vital not only that private U.S. enterprises maintain adequate cybersecurity measures, but that the government pursues vigorous policies to deter hostile governments such as Russia, China, and North Korea from launching such attacks.

...

Biden and the Democrats do not really respect real infrastructure.  They are just using them as an excuse for their vote-buying schemes.
