Mica: Yeah. Maybe We Can

Very mild rebuke from House T&I Committee Chair John Mica (R-FL) to state of the union.
“After the Administration derailed a major six-year transportation bill in 2009, it is encouraging that they are now on board with getting infrastructure projects and jobs moving again. However, just another proposal to spend more of the taxpayers’ money, when we have billions of dollars sitting idle tied up in government red tape, will never get our economic car out of the ditch.
“We’ve got to do more with less to improve our infrastructure in a fiscally responsible manner.”
Compare this to Rep. Ryan's (below).
We'll be posting audio of Mica in a bit.
