Collapse of bridge in WA underscores urgent need for infrastructure investments.Will latest falling structure prod Rs in Congress to act?
— David Axelrod (@davidaxelrod) May 24, 2013
Just about four years ago weren’t we told by Democrats like Axelrod that the nearly trillion dollars in stimulus would be the historic investment in bridges, roads and rail that this country needed?
Obama in 2009:
“Because of this investment,” he said, “nearly 400,000 men and women will go to work rebuilding our crumbling roads and bridges, repairing our faulty dams and levees, bringing critical broadband connections to businesses and homes in nearly every community in America, upgrading mass transit, building high-speed rail lines that will improve travel and commerce throughout our nation.”
Democrats using a deadly bridge collapse to wage baseless attacks on Republicans while shamelessly hawking more pork spending bills is nothing new. Nobody pimps tragedies like these clowns.
Update: The Washington bridge collapse apparently happened because a semi truck carrying an oversized load hit a support beam. Stand by for Axel-wad to claim that the driver was a tea partying Republican.
