Much Wailing and Gnashing of Teeth over Highway Bill

Although Alaska gets less than 1% of the money in the $286 billion highway spending bill, (a mere $940 million), Alaska has been singled out for derision.

Never mind that Alaskans have been paying more than their fair share to the Federal Government for more than 50 years. While few can expect any reasonable accuracy in the mainstream media, it is interesting to note that $2.3 million is slated for landscaping of a California freeway named after former President Ronald Reagan, an opponent of big government spending, just one of 6,371 projects included in the bill.
