Huckabee Declares War on Traffic

MIAMI, FL — Mike Huckabee spoke to the Latin Builders Association along with the other presidential hopefuls here on Friday.

As he did during Thursday’s debate, Huckabee made the case for Keynesian economics

“Many of you know that for every billion dollars we invest in highways there are 40,000 direct jobs that get created,” he said.

Then he continued, “Now take $150 billion that are in the stimulus package and you can widen I-95 from Bangor, Maine to Miami, Florida from four to six lanes, and if you would do that, you would not only create American jobs, using American steel and American concrete, but you would do something that is in desperate need to be done, and that’s alliviate the traffic bottle necks that believe me, being here the last several days, you need to do.”

At another point of the speech, he cited the Minnesota bridge collapse as evidence that our infastructure was being neglected, even though it has been determined that a design flaw led to the disaster.
