Trains For America

More choices for better transportation

Republicans Blast ‘Livable Communities’ Bill As Washington-Based Central Planning for Cities and Towns | CNSnews.com

I cannot imagine being forced to live in a community with wide sidewalks,  lanes for bus turns, open spaces and bike lanes. That’s SOCIALISM!

(CNSNews.com) – The Senate Banking Committee passed the Livable Communities Act on Tuesday, moving the bill one step closer to final passage. The bill creates $4 billion in neighborhood planning grants for “sustainable” living projects and a new federal office to oversee them.

    It is a shame that improving the quality of life for Americans isn’t a goal for all.

    Did you say something about improving the quality of life for “all.” That’s communism, pure and simple.

  3. I am 2 years older than the retiring baby boomers and I dislike getting on the 8 lane divided highway that takes me to the regional mall and the mega market across the street from that mall. I prefer to use the older 5 lane county road with the ma & pa hardware store and the 1960 sixe grocery store. It is convenient and has less traffic.

    You’re being disingenuous by implying that republocrats oppose wide sidewalks … The question is … Why is the federal gov’t paying for it? This is a local problem that should be dealt with by local gov’ts as they see fit.

    This is wasted money for “planning”. Well heck, I can plan the “prefect city” … IMHO … right here on my laptop but heck, give me a couple of million dollars in a grant and I’ll even print it out for you.
