To be fair, there is some truth to what UtahBill is saying here. As a driver of our nations roads, there seems to be some stretches of roadway that are so bad that you can barely drive on them without incurring alignment damage. But, yet other stretches that it seems as soon as they are completed, they are milled again and redone.
There is an enormous amount of this nations infrastructure that is in absolute emergency need of updating. Power, Sewer, Roads, Buildings, Bridges....etc...
The point where there is conflict, and we should all be spitting mad at this is that monies that have been extracted from our taxes for these types of things has been effectively stolen into the general funds that were used for other social programs that have nothing to do with infrastructure, and more to do with endless buying of votes.
Now we are in a pickle, and they want more.
