    He joked & laughed about his non-existent shovel-ready plans already; why would we take him seriously now?

    Most infrastreucture is local and state concerns. Is Carlson too ignorant to know this?

    I am reminded of the time in the 1990’s when infrastructure bills pere proposed. One of the intellectuals of the Right Wing the owlish George Willsaid “what is infrastructure?” He proceeded to follow a fallacy to its illogical conclusion which for him is that infrastructure is nonsense. Sure it is George.

    Even so many states need financial help and it could put a lot of people to work an pay them good money too. Just like we did in the 1930’s and it worked.

    Republican strategists planned and implemented a strategy of obstruction and zero co-operation with the Obama administration, regardless of the consequences to the nation.

    (but they’re happy as pie to quietly accept federal money).

    We are a large country with very diverse needs but still need a unified response. Some needs are greater than states alone can handle. We have to be able to deal with to that. States are balancing their budgets which doesn’t allow them the flexibility to deal with regional problems. But whenever we talk about working together the words “socialism” and “liberals” are uttered as curse words and all attempts collapse.

    Its to bad that Gas Main Explosion was not in Georgetown, how would the politicians react if that explosion happened near their multi-million dollar homes?

    Infrastructure. What a great way to put millions of people to work. From high paying engineering jobs to low level labor. But where to get the cash? Gee, it seems that the favored projects of a congress critter gets more money even if it accomplishes nothing but line the pockets of said congress critter.

    One article I read (there were many) said this:

    Pennsylvania is the state with the largest number of deteriorating bridges with more than one out of four bridges in need of repair – 5,906 out of a total of 22,271.

    Oklahoma, Iowa, Rhode Island, and South Dakota followed Pennsylvania as the five states with the highest number of aging bridges. More than 20 percent of bridges in those states were structurally deficient.

    Meanwhile Nevada, Florida, Texas, Arizona, and Utah were the five states with the fewest bridges in need of repair.

    Is there any correlation between local government policy/party and the deterioration of the infrastructure?

    I couldn’t and wouldn’t point that finger. But where does the money earmarked for infrastructure repair end up?

    Bring the warriors home. Make it easy for contractors to hire them and let’s get to work rebuilding OUR OWN COUNTRY.

    Just a note: if a road has “U.S.” as in U.S. highway in its designation, then federal gas taxes are used to maintain it. As the federal gas tax hasn’t increased in decades, while oil company profits from gas produced on the cheap from federal lands and waters have increased by several hundred percent in that same time frame, maybe a little increase is needed to keep up with maintenance? Of highways, not CEO yachts that is…

    You sound like a member of Lincoln’s Cabinet.

    If that’s the Chrysler Building, the toll on that bridge for cars is $13 (going up to $15 in 2016), $51 (going up to $63) for 3 axle trucks, and $85 (going up to $105) for 5 axle trucks. Somehow I don’t think the problem is lack of money.

    Of course, if that building is One Liberty Place in Philly, the Ben Franklin Bridge is a “more reasonable” $5.
