Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Critics on social media tore into U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer, R-Hoover, after he touted funding for the Birmingham Northern Beltline that he worked to include in the federal infrastructure package but declined to mention that he voted against the legislation.

The package, signed by President Biden on Monday after the House passed a Senate version of the legislation Nov. 5, includes $360 million for the Birmingham Northern Beltline -- the proposed six-lane highway stretching from northern Jefferson County to Bessemer.

Construction on the thoroughfare has stalled since 2016 amid funding shortfalls.

Despite signing on to a bill included in the package that allocates funds for the project, Palmer voted against the package -- a crucial detail he omitted when he praised the funding on Monday.

Was there ever any doubt that they wouldn't?

Taking credit for things they didn't do has been their SOP for the past 40 years.

That is the entire myth of Fat Nixon and certainly describes his entire presidency.
