Those who read this blog know my feelings about the pride of Ohio, Rep. John Boehner. Especially his views on bicycles and bike commuting. Here is a new quote from him on Face the Nation this week addressing proposed infrastructure investment:
I think there’s a place for infrastructure, but what kind of infrastructure? Infrastructure to widen highways, to ease congestion for American families? Is it to build some buildings that are necessary? But if we’re talking about beautification projects, or we’re talking about bike paths, Americans are not going to look very kindly on this.
Mr. Boehner, you don't speak for this American.
The comments are around the 5:00 minute mark of the interview:
