Question Is YOUR (Local) Infrastructure COLLAPSING?

It's lookin' like The President's giving EVERYONE the whole "America's Most Wanted" opportunity!!!!!

Highway Funding Blitz
July 14, 2014

"As part of the push, the White House also plans to debut a new website featuring an interactive map allowing Americans to see transportation construction projects where they live.

Users will also be encouraged to submit photos of road, bridge and traffic conditions."
That'll be ONE way to show everyone what Republicans are IGNORING, infrastructure-wise!!
Thanks from Camelot

The first step would be to quit robbing the highway fund for mass transit projects and use it for what it was intended, roads and bridges.

Actually the highway trust funds biggest problem is that increased MPG has led to decreasing revenue coming in. It is projected that, if Congress does not act, by August the highway trust fund will go bust. This will be the big media story in August.

didn't Obama promise that the stimulus and Omnibus spending bills of 2009 were to fund infrastructure (You know those SHOVEL READY jobs.)..

So Where did he send that money.. OBAMA GAVE IT JP MORGAN CHASE,, BANK OF AMERICA.. he gave the shovels to bankers. and Wall Street....


and Obama said screw you Main Street.. I love my Big donors.

Shovel ready jobs are not major infrastructure projects but thanks for stopping by. August will suck politically speaking. The highway fund insolvency will be the main media story. I predict the Republicans will act like fools and try to attach the Keystone pipeline to the Bill and that will go nowhere. There are roughly 700,000 jobs tied to the infrastructure construction business. If the Republicans play politics with this issue, there will be massive layoffs.
