Buttigieg announces $160B plan to paint American streets with pride rainbows

WASHINGTON, DC – Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has announced a $160 billion plan, part of the larger $1 trillion infrastructure bill, to paint every street in America with rainbows. “I can’t think of a better way to honor our LGBTQIA community than painting every inch of America’s roughly 4 million miles of roadway with pride rainbows,” Buttigieg explained during a press conference Monday. At a cost of $40,000 per mile, interstate highways will be painted with the transgender pride colors of pink, white, and blue, while state highways and surface streets will be painted with the traditional gay pride rainbow scheme. Also included in the bill is a $25 billion plan to rename all highways after prominent gay rights activists, $200 billion for a high speed rail link between Indianapolis and Washington, DC, and approximately $500 to repair America’s crumbling bridges.
