As far back as June 2020 progressive AGs already banded together to make sure promiscuous claims of a so-called COVID “emergency” didn’t unleash projects that were actually “shovel ready”. Could lead to economic recovery.
Shut down the economy in the name of a COVID emergency? How dare you question that.
Spend trillions for the same reason? Absolutely.
Suspend laws in the name of a “climate emergency”? Of course.
But expediting those things that (even the very same) politicians insist are their top priority — infrastructure projects — to, you know, actually put people back to work and get them built? Don’t get crazy.
