After the recent bridge collapse there’s been a lot of news about bridges all over the country.  It’s been coming to light the seriously deteriorated condition of many of them.  Obviously, something needs to be done about the situation, preferably before another one collapses and kills more people.

BUSH OPPOSES TAX HIKE TO FIX BRIDGES

President Bush told a White House news conference that Congress should not raise the
gas tax to pay for repairing the nation’s bridges until lawmakers have come to grips
with spending on pet projects.

But do we get any kind of action from Congress or the White House toward getting some repairs done?  No. What we get is a fresh round of infighting about who is going to spend what money to pay for it.  Meanwhile aging structures continue to age and people continue to drive on them every day.
