Priorities...Priorities

"There are 500 bridges around the country similar to the Minneapolis span, and ... these are potential deathtraps. ... We have to, as a Congress, grasp this problem. And yes, I would even suggest, fund this problem with a tax."

~ Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), former chairman of the House Transportation Committee.

And this from one of the sponsors of Alaska's 'bridge to nowhere.'

LOL, these bridges are already funded with a tax! Highway taxes! What a scumbag!

Amen!

How about we take care of what we already have and let those shiny new projects wait until the current infrastructure is up to snuff.

Existing stuff MUST be maintained, the new stuff can wait. . .
