Infrastructure spending won't be so great under Obama

Much of what passes for "change" out of the Obama administration is starting to disappoint me. Too much remains "the same." At least when it comes to transportation. The GreaterGreater Washington blog says that Obama economic advisor Larry Summers is "steering President Obama and the stimulus bill away from transit and other infrastructure spending and toward tax cuts."

UPDATE: Speaker Pelosi needs to receive some phone calls today to help improve the situation in the House. After you call, leave a record of your effort here.

    I'd go a bit farther and ask where is the money for walkers? Curbs, sidewalks, other ROW improvements.
