Obama’s $107 billion transportation plan: Trains and roads to nowhere

By Examiner Editorials @ Washington Examiner (August 27, 2012)

Ryan’s Path to Prosperity budget does return federal spending levels on all transportation projects to pre-recession levels. In 2008, the federal government spent $77 billion on transportation. In what would be Romney’s first full fiscal year in office (FY 2014), the Ryan budget calls for $84 billion in transportation spending. That’s not a “slash” in spending.
