AP TELEVISION -- AP CLIENTS ONLYWashington -- July 21, 20141. SOUNDBITE; Anthony Foxx, Secretary of Transportation (partly covered by construction b-roll, Source: AP, Location: Milwaukee, July 18, 2014):"Until Congress passes a long-term bill, I'm urging the American people to say, 'no more delays. No more gimmicks. No more short-term patches or band-aids. Build our country. Put us to work and get America moving again and help future generations move forward in the process.' Because, folks, if we're only building for the present, we are building for the past."2. SOUNDBITE; Anthony Foxx, Secretary of Transportation (covered by construction b-roll, Source: AP, Location: Milwaukee, July 18, 2014):"What I'm saying, in effect, is that America needs more than just an incremental adjustment. We need a transportation reset and it's gotta be big."3.

It's like it's upside down. What's right is wrong. What's wrong is right.'4. SOUNDBITE; Anthony Foxx, Secretary of Transportation (covered by construction b-roll, Source: AP, Location: Milwaukee, July 18, 2014):"Ladies and gentlemen, the idea that Congress can't pass a multi-year, forward-thinking transportation bill is one of the biggest self-fulfilling prophecies in American politics. And, byt the way, it is killing our transportation system softly. One of the building blocks of our economy."
