Biden economic adviser: 'It's important we upgrade our definition of infrastructure'
By Mychael Schnell - 04/04/21 11:32 AM EDT


Cecilia Rouse, the chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, on Sunday said it is important to “upgrade our definition of infrastructure” when discussing President Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure proposal.

When pressed by host Margaret Brennan on CBS’s “Face the Nation” if she can say the proposal is focused "on building roads and bridges” when only about 5 percent of its funding goes to those areas, Rouse said a new definition is needed that “meets the needs of a 21st century economy.”

“I think it's important that we upgrade our definition of infrastructure, one that meets the needs of a 21st century economy, and that means we need to be funding and incentivizing those structures that allow us to maximize our economic activity,” Rouse said.

Rouse went on to discuss the White House’s large investment in the electric vehicle market, which she said is an important factor in addressing climate change.

“So, incentivizing electric vehicles is really important because we need to be addressing climate change. If we think about the opportunity cost of not doing so we're just going to keep paying for it and we know that we need to be encouraging our industries to be tilting towards greener production and greener technologies,” Rouse said.

Wow!  She used big words like "Opportunity Cost!"  That's pretty good for a Socialist.

It's a pity that doesn't mean what she thinks it does....

I've seen it posted often, on other forums, too.

Could someone explain where it comes from?
And what specific "word" was in question?

It looks to be from a modern movie.
I don't watch "modern movies" (by "modern", I mean "made since about 1990"...)

The flick was "The Princess Bride" and the short guy kept saying, "Inconceivable!"

Ah, "The Princess Bride" that was one of my daughter's favorites as she was growing up and I've sat and watched the darn thing at least a half dozen times.   Yes, inconceivable.  :laugh:

Princess Bride released 1987, the word was 'inconceivable' directed by Meathead, though I think he received too much credit considering the quality of the cast.

The need to re-invent the meaning of words to get away with much more lieing.  Of course like slick said so very long ago, depending on what the meaning of the word is, is.  It really is strange how people become so addicted to lies and liars, and nearly always bawl their eyes out afterward.  It's like a severe learning disability!
