[Ed.– Sidewalks. No joke.]

If it’s a day ending in “y,” then there’s a good chance that a liberal in the Obama regime is going to say something stupid.  That was the case Tuesday when Obama Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx told an audience in North Carolina that inequitable distribution of sidewalks are an obstacle to the American dream.

Seriously.

CNS News reported:

Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx told a crowd in North Carolina Tuesday that “only 49% of low-income neighborhoods have sidewalks” while more affluent areas have near 90%. In order to have a society where “everyone has a shot at the American Dream, than it’s imperative that we acknowledge these challenges.”

Foxx made the comments to the Charlotte Rotary Club where he discussed the ways that infrastructure should connect people to opportunity.

Foxx made his “case” with a map of Atlanta that showed areas of pedestrian and bicycle accidents.
