Republicans take aim at billions set aside in stimulus bill for infrastructure and transport projects, including Amtrak, BART, and a bridge to Canada

Recommended Posts

Oh, and the noise about the bridge to Canada? It's Stefanik fucking her constituents to own the libs.



A false talking point that Republicans used about bridge funding in President Biden’s $1.9T COVID relief bill will end up costing New York’s upstate district in real life, the Daily News has learned.


Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) denounced the huge relief package claiming the Democrats added unnecessary spending including $1.5 million for the “Schumer bridge” better known as the Seaway International Bridge connecting New York to Canada across the St. Lawrence River.


In reality, the funding was originally requested by the Trump administration and then-Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao to cover maintenance and toll revenue lost, nearly $170,000 a month, when the borders were significantly restricted due to the pandemic.
