I like many aspects of Trump's plan.

Great.  Just great.  More fuqing toll roads!  Just what we need!

Why do you baggers support this shyt?  It's basically just a hidden tax on you.

Re: Trump announces infrastructure project

I live in central Florida and we have a ridiculous amount of toll roads here.  Let me tell you it REALLY REALLY sucks.  You pretty much have to be willing to pay $7-$12 a day or otherwise be willing to sit in traffic an extra hour.  All new roads or lanes built are now tolls.  They love it when the free roads back up because this forces you to use the toll roads.  They also set up the signage to encourage people to use the toll roads.  They are especially fond of tricking the tourists.

Even with Google Maps or Waze it really sucks because they only have ninary options.  You either turn on the toll roads or not.  You cannot for example say "only use the toll road if it saves me more than 15 minutes".  As a result I end up keeping Google Maps with tolls enables and Waze without so I can simply use one or another and decide.

Re: Trump announces infrastructure project

I-4 is the perfect example of how fuqed up things get when baggers are in charge.  I just got back from the Orlando area and I was almost killed no less than three times when pissed off truckers in traffic decided to just say fuq it and cut over to the left in front of me with no turn signals or clearance.

The whole area near downtown Orlando on I-4 is under construction and frankly I don't even see how the feds even allow the road to stay open.  It is a death trap.  The lines marking the lanes aren't even correct making it extremely dangerous.  Parts of the road are literally like a minefield with all the pot holes.  And this is a fuqing interstate!

The people responsible for I-4 ought to be dragged out of their homes and shot.  No scratch that.  Those motherfuqers deserve to be tortured to death with their fuqing bodies hung from a pole near exit 94!  I'm pretty sure at least one person a week dies because of the incompetence that is I-4.

I can't believe how incompetent the bagger governors and leaders have been regarding I-4!

Re: Trump announces infrastructure project

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has warned that drivers could soon be paying "Trump tolls" because of the plan’s incentives for communities to seek money from private investors.

"Hedge funds and wealthy investors will want projects that generate a profit by charging middle-class Americans hundreds of dollars a year in tolls, taxes and fees,” Schumer wrote in an op-ed just before Trump’s State of the Union address. “Our nation’s roads, bridges and tunnels would become tools for wealthy investors to profit off the middle class rather than the job-creating public assets they ought to be."

Ready to pay your "Trump tolls" to the billionaires?

So every other thing you use you pay for - but roads ans bridges (very costly) should be free?

I agree.  We should immediately require everyone to be fitted with a measuring device which will measure how much air they breathe so that they may be charged an appropriate toll.

If nothing will be "free" from the government and will require tolls and user fees then what exactly are we paying taxes for?  Welfare for billionaires maybe??

How much does the government spend producing air? I'm ok with paying my fair share of $0.

Re: Trump announces infrastructure project

Sounds like a giant construction racket scam. Time to examine Trump's holdings and see where he and his minions will benefit.

This is a horrible plan, at what should have been a major public works initiative with federal funding for at least 20 years.

We do not want private investors setting up toll roads, and naming bridges after themselves. What a horrible idea.

Don't hold back man, tell us what you really think!


Years ago, I used to have a professor who wanted the state to have signs by the road announcing who the contractor was and how much the job costs.

So people would be driving down I-4 and see "this construction site brought to you by ABC highway company. Current cost: $50MM".

Thats a good idea. Also, keep the signs up after the job is done.
