The tens of billions of dollars for unneeded and impractical passenger rail will only fuel more wasteful white elephants to accompany California's ongoing high-speed rail fiasco. The tens of billions of...

Climate change central planning is found throughout the 2,700-plus page infrastructure bill that President Biden is touting as bipartisan.

Say No To The Bloated “Infrastructure” Deal

After many months of discussion, we now have the text of a bipartisan infrastructure bill which some senators hope to rush through the Senate in just a week. The Democratic Party’s go-it-alone additional spending bill (beyond the regular budget), which they want to pass through reconciliation, is still undrafted, but Speaker Pelosi continues to promise it must pass side by side with the infrastructure bill.  While the administration’s preposterous attempt to define every progressive...

According to the New York Times , Biden’s...
