Chairman Mica says:
this proposal maximizes the value of our available infrastructure funding through better leveraging, streamlining the project approval process, attracting private sector investment, and cutting the federal bureaucracy, ... Most importantly, this six-year proposal provides the stability states need to plan major transportation improvements and create long-term jobs.
Decoding that, Chairman Mica is saying: "Screw You, Cities".
And of course, a bit of "screw you countryside" too, since those votes can be taken for granted.
