    Stuff like this is why you're impossible to take seriously. When you turn every petty little thing into some hyperpartisan Obama whinefest, it just looks silly. Like when you made the thread complaining about the Congressional Medal of Freedom ceremony.

    Then again I could just be tired of all the BS talking the left has done and due to the way they play things.....like 5 years of it and now I feel the need to return the favor.

    What now that the shoe is on the other foot, all of sudden the left can't handle it. Can't handle what they started with from the beginning. Can't handle the same tactics they use. Don't like the **** talkin and now you's want to whine and cry.

    Save all that BS for someone that gives a damn.

    Ah yes, the "left" made you do it.



    EDIT: I found the bold especially laughable.

    Not even close.....I don't mind helping those from the lost flock with any reality.

    Yeah I figured you would while sitting around on a computer. Par for the course.

    honestly after your comment before, I'm surprised you would say this.

    Regular building maintanence workers are there to fix basic issues with the building as they come, electrical, plumbing, fire safety etc.

    They're not really there to fix massive underlying structural issues of centuries old architecture.

When I get a maintenance or "make ready" job I supply the customer a detailed list of observed defects and then let the customer decide which of them I should repair. Infrequently, I find defects that require skills (or permits) that I do not possess (e.g. electrical service panel upgrade or septic system repair is required) but make these defects known as well.
    I would guess "nobody" outside of normal plumbing/electrical/carpeting/code maintenance. The US Capitol building is a pretty sturdy structure; external touchups have likely been done over the years but basic structural repairs are likely farmed out on a need-only basis.

    This is pure conjecture, so feel free to shoot it down.

    60 million dollar renovation is government talk for 300 million "work in progress" project. They never tell us the true number....

    What are you talking about? 90% of this work is not "structural" at all - it is sealing cracks to prevent water damage and replacing/repairing gutters and clogged drainage ports. Those things are normal building maintenance. While it is true that simply cleaning and repainting things is the easy way to hide water damage problems, it does not fix them; we are now to the point of having to place catch buckets under the leaks - that does not occur in a properly maintained building.
