People seem to forget that public works, schools, health care, and public safety (law enforcement) is what has made this country great. It's still, albeit hanging on by its fingernails, the best. These programs and this infrastructure prospered from programs instituted by FDR during the depression and after WWII. They are still great programs. What has affected them for over twenty years or more now has been budget manipulation and cuts by politicians. Now our fine president, a so called President of the People, has passed the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy (which is one of the major causes of the newest depression) and continues to fully and lavishly fund two war fronts. Isn't it time the people who support our city, state, and federal infrastructure have what they deserve? As far as the politicians are concerned they just assume all workers retire at age 70, and die penniless in some backwoods nursing home and the sooner the better.
