I'm glad these guys aren't in charge anymore

From John Boehner and Eric Cantor's letter to the President. It contains this and other great ways to save money:

Terminate Federal Transportation Funding For “Non-Motorized” Transportation Projects
The Federal government is currently spending $25 million a year to fund four Non-motorized Transportation Pilot programs. This program is designed to fund a network of “non-motorized transportation infrastructure facilities” to encourage residents to walk or bike rather than using a car. Refocusing Federal resources on transportation projects with a federal nexus would save taxpayers $125 million over five years.

The crazy thing is that "Boner" has two local cyclists on his staff and he still pooped all over this. Now if it was golf and cigaretts, he would have been all over it.
