Thanks Professor Flintstone

I guess you think Broadband demand is static and could never increase. Our nationwide broadband is hit or miss with rural areas having the worst
Our internet is still vulnerable to cyber attacks that can paralyze our nation

What do you care about paralyzing our nation? We are run by a brain-dead President that YOU and other deadbeats support. That should be our biggest concern.

A modern Internet that can handle expected loads and is protected from cyber attacks is essential to the US economy

I don’t care about your mothers flip phone

I see you keep avoiding the subject but I'm not about to forget. This is much less about cyber security than it is about giving Democrat voters more free shit. Tell the commies to get the free shit out of the bill and they'll gain more Republican support.

Name some free shit

Infrastructure by its very nature helps some more than others. As a whole, it is vital to the country

It's in plain English in the site I provided. It's about providing internet to poor people. Need the list number?

Anything that is free has little or no value; it's like going to a grocery store and loading up on whatever you want and as much as you want cuz you ain't paying for it. If it was me and I wanted to incentivize education or technical training, I'd do it by giving people who graduated a tax break to pay off their student debt over the next 10 years. You get maybe 50% of your debt paid by the gov't in a tax credit if you file a return, and once your 10 years are up the tax credit ends. And it ain't fungible, meaning you don't get any money back; so if you owe $500 in federal taxes and your tax credit is say $1000 for that year, you ain't getting a $500 refund.

$65 billion for broadband. Includes funding to expand broadband in rural areas and in low-income communities. Approximately $14 billion of the total would help reduce Internet bills for low-income citizens.

Most is expanding broadband in underserved areas
It subsidizes internet coverage, doesn’t give it free

Nobody should be putting us further in debt for luxuries which the internet is. If people in rural areas want the internet, they know how to get it. If low income people can't afford the internet, then they can do without the internet like the millions of Americans that already do because they don't want it or need it. Or they can go to the library to use it because it's free there.

There is a difference between need and want. I would want an indoor swimming pool, but I don't need one. The Communists want to buy votes with money we don't have, and any real American should be against that.

The internet hasn’t been a luxury in 25 years
It is vital to doing business in the world

Let's see, what did Biden promise you:

Free college! Wait, never mind, Biden fucked you out of that one. LOL

Student loan forgiveness! Wait, never mind, Biden fucked you out of that one. LOL

SALT deduction! Wait, never mind, Biden fucked you out of that one. LOL

Our President is a Pragmatist

He understands it is not what you want but what you can get

Americans didn't sign up for Bernie Sanders' socialist vision

Dems' spending bill is a one-way ticket to socialism

I think you should look up the word pragmatic before you ever use it again. You see pragmatic means logical.

Nothing logical about paying people to stay home creating a labor and supply chain shortage.
Nothing logical about creating those things for the highest inflation rate in 20 years.
Nothing logical about removing just about all successful border policies creating a new crisis.
Nothing logical about increasing fuel costs so people have much less money when unemployment is in the 5% range.

If you can tell me one pragmatic thing this dementia patient did since taking office, I would love to know what that is.

Sure it has. That's why millions of Americans have been able to live without it just fine and still do.

Biden knows how to play the political game. As they say, Shoot for the moon and settle for the stars. Few people seriously thought Biden was going to get free community college or total student loan forgiveness through Congress. If Biden is able to get a nearly 1.75T infrastructure bill passed, it will be considered a victory for him.

The internet can be information for many people. Although it can be political and there are shysters. Newspapers used to be cheap to read in another era. They are not that important anymore for the price. Some areas produce low price newspapers or free ones.

The Infrastructure Bills, when passed will be a major accomplishment for Biden’s legacy

A Bill Obama and Trump fought to get but were unsuccessful

You think this was some sort of Biden genius plan? That's the way Congress has operated my entire life.
