My take on this is very simple, in the past fixing our country’s infrastructure was a bipartisan goal. Now the obstructionist arm of Congress seems hell bent on making sure that, heaven forbid, someone dies because a bridge or a track or a building collapses. Come on people, this is a no brainer, we are in the 21st century and we need to act like a country that is the leader of the world in the 21st century and shame on those who are stopping this. Here’s how you can take action call 1-202-224-3121 and say you want to speak to your Congressman and Senators, and tell their office we need to fund repair of infrastructure in our country. Give them your name and zip code so that they know you’re one of their constituents. Be short and concise, and when you finish store number so that you can make your voice heard some other time. Corporations have full access to these people, our vote is the only thing we have to make sure that , we the p8 are heard. We live in a great country, speak up and make it even better.

President Barack Obama will fly to St. Paul, Minnesota, on Wednesday to propose a four-year, $302 billion plan to create jobs by fixing the nation’s crumbling roads, bridges, rail and transportation infrastructure. Congress faces a September 30 deadline to renew federal funding for transportation programs, a deadline that has made state governors concerned about planning projects that typically run through September and into the fall months. Obama will propose ending some tax breaks to provide a one-time $150 billion infusion of cash into transportation funding, the White House said. “This vision will show how we can invest in the things we need to grow and create jobs by closing unfair tax loopholes, lowering tax rates, and making the system more fair,” the White House said in a statement previewing his speech, set for 3:05 p.m. EST (2005 GMT).
I hope we can agree or agree not to agree any to case let’s keep it all civil
