    The new deal programs with SS centralized power. As bury pointed out to you Ike did the federal highway system. So indeed you said you like programs that cause centralized power but donít like centralized power.

    Such horrid leadership. You can see by Granholm's quip "Well if you had an electric car you wouldn't have to worry about this...." that on this issue they don't care.

    At first they tried to pretend like it wasn't their problem..."We don't like to interfere with private business".... bullshit. Then when they realized they were getting clobbered and optics were visions of the Carter era they perked up a bit to a "pretend to care" posture. Granholm let the cat out of the bag with the electric car quip. She who was a politician yet has enough money to have 5 million of it invested in electric bus stock.

    These people are so corrupt. This is a perfect example of being guilty of the shit they accused Trump of but with Trump it was ridiculous. Like when they accused him of having financial interests in the old cheap generic drug hydroxychloroquine.

    With the federal hwy system you can also look at it as being a federal responsibility anyways since 2 of the 18 enumerative powers of the federal govt consists of creating post roads for the post office and controlling commerce between the states

    Yeah but Warren Buffett owns the train cars mainly used for that oil and that pipeline was cutting into his business.

    And pipelines are a lot safer than train cars as well.

    Pipelines got automatic got automatic shutdown valves when it detects a leak. Truck or train car overturn in a tributary might affect drinking water which is the reason given why a pipeline can't be built lol. Let's not even talk about ships oooohh boy.
