You may have heard, we had a bridge collapse up this way.
It was/is an old bridge in need of updating. But several factors have kept the update on the backburner. Most notably, I would like to point out, the waste of money the Democrats and their Progressive friends keep pouring my local tax dollars and your federal tax dollars into: Light Rail.
Does anyone here remember the American Jobs Act proposed by President Obama in 2011? The one he introduced while standing in front of a bridge in Ohio that was also structurally deficient? The American Jobs Act that Senate Republicans killed with glee and great pride? That one?
You think maybe if they had taken it seriously instead of playing gotcha politics those people wouldn’t be in the water right now?
Is it too soon to ask which Republicans will not only be fired, but go to jail for injuries and or deaths caused by their inattention to our infrastructure? Not for me, it’s not.
Nowhere in that original post or in any of its multiple updates does the original poster or subsequent updaters mention that it was not the bridges lack of structural integrity that caused it to collapse, but that one or more support beams was hit by an overweight and over sized truck.
An oversized truck slammed into the overhead span of an Interstate 5 bridge, causing an entire section of the bridge to collapse. The accident happened north of Seattle, Washington on Thursday night.
The basic information is of no matter to their hatred of those who oppose their agenda.
