Sen. Tom Coburn Doesn't Get Bikes

On his blog, Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood lambastes Senator Coburn for calling bike infrastructure wasteful.

"As reported by The Washington Times, Coburn said, "When we run $1.4 trillion deficits, the money we spend ought to be a high priority for the American people as a whole."

"What he really means is that, because he doesn't get bikes, no one else does either."

"We've worked hard this year to get our Recovery Act dollars out to the states quickly and effectively. Yes, some of those projects include bike paths, a key ingredient in our livability initiative to allow people to live, work, and get around without a car.

"We don't call that waste; we call it progress."
