President Joe Biden made another stop in the once-great state of Wisconsin on Thursday, and you won’t believe what he’s promising now! The man is like a broken record with all his talk about replacing this and updating that. It’s a wonder he ever gets anything done with all that hot air he’s blowing around. This time, he’s yammering on about replacing the John A. Blatnik Memorial Bridge that connects two port cities in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Like we’ve got nothing better to spend money on.

So, get this, Biden is touting $5 billion in federal funding for 37 major infrastructure projects across 12 states. And out of that obscene amount of money, $1 billion is being set aside just for replacing the Blatnik Bridge. All this while hard-working Americans are struggling to make ends meet. Something just doesn’t add up here, folks.
But here’s the kicker: the bridge isn’t even set to close until 2030! So why the rush to throw money at it now? Oh, that’s right, because Wisconsin and Minnesota are part of the “blue wall” states that Biden is desperate to keep in his pocket for the 2024 election. Let’s call it what it is: a thinly veiled attempt to buy votes with taxpayer dollars.
And don’t even get started on the so-called benefits of this bridge replacement plan. They’re yammering on about “expanding weight capacity,” “building wider shoulders,” and “increasing accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists.” As if anyone besides a handful of bike enthusiasts cares about that stuff.
But of course, Biden is putting on a show, meeting with small business owners to sell his ludicrous plan. He’s probably hoping a photo op with some regular folks will distract from the fact that this is just one more example of big government overreach.
Unbelievably, this bridge replacement is just a drop in the bucket of Biden’s massive $400 billion “Investing in America” agenda. He’s throwing money around like there’s no tomorrow, with over 40,000 infrastructure projects on his list. It’s like he thinks he’s playing Monopoly with the taxpayers’ hard-earned cash.
And to add insult to injury, Biden is also blabbering about improvements to other bridges and highways across the country. What’s next, a gold-plated road from the White House to the nearest ice cream parlor? It’s high time someone put a stop to this reckless spending spree before there’s nothing left for future generations.
