Sure.  And how long should that take Tom?  In your expert opinion on repair of major metropolitan transit systems?

Irrelevant. Funding intended for years down the line isn't an emergency.

In the aftermath of 9-11 emergency funding was needed for the people hurt and killed in the aftermath, but funding the construction of new towers and ongoing maintenance on those new towers wasn't an emergency. The buildings might need to be built back, but if it can take 5 years instead of 4 years, that is not an emergency and is not appropriate to be on an emergency funding bill in the immediate aftermath of 9-11.

The word emergency connotates an immediate serious need and multi-year funding projects for ongoing projects, improvements, etc, are not emergencies. It is more appropriate for those items to be outside of a bill presented as an emergency.

Then whats the point of emergency funding?
If your house is flooded to the point where it needs to be rebuilt, do you just get some emergency funding for a week at a hotel and thats it?  Is spending a year to rebuild your house (or more depending on how many houses need to be rebuilt) not an emergency?

Now why do you think rebuilding after a disaster with infrastructure designed to withstand the next disaster is inferior to slapping some plywood and grout on the potholes and moving on?
You believe Tom wrote something indicating he thinks this way?

You believe he didn’t???
Not necessarily.

Could you point out the specific sentence he wrote indicating he does think this way?

Why should I bother with you?
I just asked.

Your retort simply and eloquently demonstrates you have nothing and your entire train of thought regarding Tom and DeSantis is really just an Angry Rant.

Not surprising.

One of the leading contenders for the 2024 GOP Presidential nomination

This fellow absolutely cannot handle the gauntlet of a presidential run and will be exposed in short order. He doesn't have Trump's support and his bid will be over before the first (maybe 2nd) debate. Rick Santorum 2.0

Kevin Sorbo could totally win an Oscar.
If he were ever cast in a role as a washed up, meathead, out of work actor, loser who destroyed his career and alienated everyone around him with stupid bullshit, he could bring the role to life in a way that would captivate everyone with its reality.

That isn't really what happened, though. Sorbo's career was in decline long before he decided to reinvent himself as a reactionary weirdo. There's been a similar trend with other has-beens with persecution complexes, like Roseanne Barr or Scott Baio - the embracing of shitty politics typically comes after they had otherwise faded into irrelevance. I guess Gina Carano is an exception, though.
