LaHood's Nascent Statism

Evidently LaHood doesn't have actual, ya' know, productive stuff to do.

So he comes up with anile program suggestions financed by.....yup....the taxpayer.

Wisconsin Reps. Jim Sensenbrenner, Paul Ryan and Tom Petri have introduced a bill that would prohibit the secretary of transportation from providing funds to state and local governments for the use of motorcycle-only traffic checkpoints.

But they also mentioned Step Two:

"Also, it's outrageously intrusive. Nobody is suggesting pulling cars off the road for unscheduled inspections, so why are motorcycle riders being harassed?"

Cars were NEXT year's plan, Congressman.
