Lack of sidewalks causes “an obstacle to the American Dream” ?

Who knew?

Via CNS News:

Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx told a crowd in North Carolina Tuesday that “only 49% of low-income neighborhoods have sidewalks” while more affluent areas have near 90%. In order to have a society where “everyone has a shot at the American Dream, than it’s imperative that we acknowledge these challenges.”

….“Transportation is about more than getting from one point to another–it’s about getting from where you are to a better life,” said Secretary Foxx in a press release discussing ‘Ladders of Opportunity’ grants in 2014.

    Another payoff for Unions like all the federal road construction. If sidewalk construction made federal then federal wage rules apply. And endless number of signs will go up; This sidewalk construction brought to you by Obama by TARP2 program.
