How about $42.5 billion in funding for high-speed internet, and not one person connected?

Joe Biden continues to be the most under-achieving president this country has ever seen.

Brendan Carr: Biden Has Not Connected One Person with High-Speed Internet with $42.5 Billion from Infrastructure Bill​


"FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr on Friday wrote that President Joe Biden has not connected one American with high-speed internet with $42.5 billion in funding from the so-called bipartisan infrastructure bill.

“In 2021, the Biden Administration got $42.45 billion from Congress to deploy high-speed Internet to millions of Americans. Years later, it has not connected even 1 person with those funds. In fact, it now says that no construction projects will even start until 2025 at earliest,” the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) commissioner wrote.

“Meanwhile, the Biden Admin has been layering a partisan political agenda on top of this $42.45B program – a liberal wish list that has nothing to do with connecting Americans. Climate change mandates, tech biases, DEI requirements, favoring government-run networks + more,” he continued.

Carr is specifically slamming the Broadband Equity, Access, and Deployment (BEAD) program, which allocated $42.45 billion to support broadband infrastructure and adoption."

It is the theft of the American Taxpayers by these Democrat Grifters who have never produced anything other than misery for the US citizens. The movie "Hillary's America", warned what would happen if the Democrats got in charge, and by God is my witness, they are doing exactly that, stealing the wealth of America to pad their own pockets.

look at the billions he's pouring into ukraine. Only to lose
 
I was reading the issue with charging stations was they are reviewing companies for DEI, and cannot find enough DIVERSE companies capable of building the charging stations.

This is likely the same bullshit.

These things take time Skippy, don’t be so impatient

The thing with infrastructure investment is you have to do it right

I find it amusing watching Conservatives who opposed any investment at all are now complaining that it is taking too long.

Were the people told that it would take years and years when the bill was passed?

If that were so, you'd have a point.

But that wasn't the impression that most people had in 2021 when this whole boondoggle started, and that's what makes the failure noteworthy now.

Funding is for ten years
Many, many construction projects have already started and we are seeing ……Jobs, jobs, jobs

The fun part is watching Republican members of Congress who voted against the bill taking credit for construction in their districts
 
Maybe we need to start a completely autonomous, dept. of forensic audits that would audit every govt. employee and their family members as well as all appropriated money. Too much money is disappearing or being misused. Our government has no internal control. MAGA

The reality is that the Government does have many independent audits as mandated by Congress
Agencies have an Inspector General to investigate misappropriation of funds

Taking money appropriated to infrastructure and using it to support illegal alien invaders is not doing it right. MAGA

I'm sure that the funding is for 10 years.

But that means the people expect about 1/3 of the project completed within the first 3 years.

That didn't happen. The long length isn't supposed to mean that nothing happens until the end, does it?

That isn't the way the people understood it, or the message Sleepy Joe conveyed when he signed this atrocity.

They have a GAO department. With huge budget. Remember the picture of the leader in a Las Vegas hi-rise bubble bath picture window, champagne, candles etc. mocking the American taxpayer at a seminar or other BS?

Our President is the first to officially recognize that our days of relying on fossil fuels to handle the bulk of our energy load are numbered
Most of the world already realize it

It is only Conservatives who cling to “Drill baby, DRILL” as the answer to our energy needs.

Biden has not ended our reliance on Fossil Fuels, he never intended to.
But he has put us on the path
