Biden’s Inflationary Woes Are Destroying His Infrastructure Plans

I would say that Joe Biden is taking one step forward and two steps back, but he is just shooting himself in both feet.

New reports indicate that inflation is taking its toll on Biden’s proposed infrastructure projects—many of which have little to nothing to do with real infrastructure and more to do with social welfare spending.

However, $550 billion of the $1 trillion infrastructure budget does relate to actual infrastructural spending on roads, broadband networks, bridges, and railways.

It’s no secret that America’s infrastructure is failing. Many of our bridges are long past due for improvements, and the road systems need to be seriously overhauled in areas experiencing a record influx of new residents from blue states.

Despite this, I doubt that the cuts will come to the social welfare aspects of Biden’s infrastructure plans—I am betting that most if not all the cuts are going to be made in terms of actual, physical infrastructure projects.

Here’s what we currently know:

Politico explains:

Materials’ prices were already on the rise even before inflation hit levels unseen in decades in May — for instance, the price of steel doubled in the year before Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act in November 2021. It came down briefly after that but is back near its highest point ever.

Since the bill’s passage, the price of diesel fuel, which is needed to ferry stone from quarries, which will eventually be turned into concrete and asphalt, has gone up by about $2 a gallon, an increase of more than 50 percent. And workers — if you can find them and keep them — are commanding higher pay.

 

According to The Associated Press:

“If this inflation keeps the way it is, we will have to roll projects from one year into the next, into the next, into the next,” said Mark Gillett, chief engineer of the Wyoming Department of Transportation.

Gillett had hoped the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act would finance a boom in highway and bridge construction.

“But it’s just not going to go as far as we had hoped,” he said.

The Biden regime is openly saying it now. Those record-high gas prices are your sacrifice for the sake of the ‘Liberal World Order.’ ‘Liberal World Order?’ Is that supposed to sound more ‘inclusive’ than ‘New World Order?’ Either way, it’s a totalitarian hellscape freedom-loving Americans will throw in the waste bin. Biden’s adviser Brian Deese,...
