Nearly 70,000 bridges rated structurally deficient
But hey, since we can't fix them all at once, let's not fix any of them. Eed thinking.
Obama promised it would fix crumbling bridges. Your messiah said that, not me.

"Library card" kind of dates you.

Most libraries today have more computers than books, except maybe kiddie books.

Soon to follow buggy whips.

<quoted text>Can't refute a single fact from my post so you start acting like the jungle bunny you truly are , you should be on your knees thanking the old white men who bought your ancesters from tribal leaders who sold them into a better life in America where they were given work and taught skills and didn't have to run from tigers and eat monkeys anymore, if not for the whites who rescued your people you would still be in africa swatting flies off of a buffalo's nuts and burying your starving children one after another , be thankful boy.
Damn! You are ignorant enough to believe all blacks are from Africa &, arrogant enough to believe that slavery was a blessing!

I was reading through the report and many of these bridges are small country road type bridges. It also states not all of them need replaced but need repairs. Finally, the feds pay for 80% of the cost and the state needs to fund the rest of the cost.
I5 isn't a country road. The failure falls on the state.

You didn't mention any bill in your post. You singled out "embassy security" and benghazi. So where is the embassy in benghazi?
Now Moocher Eed has no clue how money is spent by Congress.

Congressmen. Senators, members of the press all call the measure to provide funding for security for our diplomatic service call it embassy security. Grow up.

"idi&#333;ma"??? Yeah, I know--you meant to do that; it's just a typo; it's all Obama's fault...

Threat?

Majority of voters put Obama in office, twice!

They love what he's done with the place.

I personally will enjoy my guaranteed health insurance, cannot be turned down for coverage, BY LAW!

I know a lot of folks caught in the pre existing condition nightmare: turned down for coverage, cant buy insurance?

Oh that is the old GOP way!

You lost! Will lose from now on. Get used to it.

Obama the GENIUS! BORROWS AT 1.8% LONGTERM TO FIX THE BUSH SHTTTT!
