My fellow Americans, we are the nation that built the Golden Gate Bridge in four years and the Hoover Dam in five.
Now, it takes as much as a decade just to plan a major permit or a major infrastructure or anything even remotely major in our country,
and that's ridiculous and it's going to change.
This week, I laid out a bold and exciting new vision for the infrastructure in America that will make our country faster, safer and wealthier.
Frankly, it will make our country greater.
For too long, America has spent trillions and trillions of dollars building up other countries while our own country decayed and our own people suffered.
Our highways and railways and airports and seaports have all been neglected and it's holding our economy back.
But now, our economy is starting to roar and it's time to rebuild our great nation and we have to think big and think big again.
