Roy LaHood, who disagrees with those numbers, is a Republican.

There is a huge financial loss every day that you have a couple million people taking an hour and a half to travel 8 miles (three hours total a day). Think of how much money is being thrown away by permitting that situation to continue.

I could easily be wrong, sure... but it reminds me of people who save money by not putting new tires and brakes on the car, because they can't afford it. As my grandfather (the son-in-law of a Republican Congressman) would always ask, "Well, can you afford the funeral?"
