    Unfortunately, our bridges and highways are crumbling here at home...
    Which bridges would those be?

    Republicans are now on record for blocking it.
    The American people gave the Republicans the biggest landslide victory in 60 years, so they could stop insane bills, just like this one. Ultimately, the Republicans are doing the job they were hired to do.

    There you go confusing the issues with democracy.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Oh please, that whole bridge debacle was political opportunism. The Minneapolis I35 bridge fell and Obama couldn't let a disaster go to waste. So he found another way to raise spending. Now, low and behold, Obama needs more tax revenue. Who didn't see that coming.

    Damn liberals and their bridges and highways. People don't need to commute or travel or anything.

    I go over bridges all the time and never see them crumble away... can you show me a few crumbling bridges and roads due to lack of repair?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Huh... so you're saying Republican AND Democrats are letting our bridges and roads crumble away? Funny thing though... travelled 2 hours each way yesterday and both the NJ Turpike and Garden State Parkway had literally 5-20 miles of construction, Router 287 too. I mean, it's like the Federal Government decided to fund reconstruction by printing more money and sending it to the states for shovel rea.... oh wait.

    Do you know why the bridge fell? It wasn't in disrepair, it was poorly engineered. It was a bad design. No amount of maintenance would have stopped the problem. Yet, Obama ran around claiming the I35 bridge failure was a maintenance issue and if we didn't give him money now more bridges would fall.

    So we should be negligent? Just tell 'em "Sorry bud, need to cut that federal spending."
