Hello Everyone:
I sent out this White House e-mail below on July 23rd with Vice President Biden explaining in a 5 minute video about why we need to rebuild our bridges and roads.  Now 60 Minutes is sending out more “Warning Bells”.  
Is this problem a NO Brainer or what?  It’s not like no one can figure out the solution.  The solution is staring us in the face.
Of course; the American people will pay to raise taxes if they know for sure the money is going to FIX this MESS.  Large corporations should PAY their SHARE since a lot of traffic is moving goods around the country and corporation employees are crossing these bridges mainly to travel back and forth to their jobs.
While there’s blame on both sides of the political aisle–I must say that the GOP’s leadership or lack of leadership and the U.S. Congress could care less.  All they are looking for is to score cheap political points and fill the airwaves with their toxic views at the expense of the American people who travel daily to and from their jobs on our crumbling bridges and roads.
I included the 60 Minutes in-depth story (warning) that aired tonight.

​America’s Crumbling Bridges

 –
Seventy thousand (70,000) bridges nationwide need to be repaired or replaced according to a 60 Minutes report on Nov. 23, 2014

Take a story about a crumbling bridge.  Mix in a Brookings study
pointing out how few adults in NEPA have college degrees. 
Stir well until deadline

Extremist GOPs don’t care if you blow out tires on your car from all the potholes or if your car with your family in it drops into the river below from a collapsed bridge.
The White House Wednesday, July 23, 2014
-The VP has the white board marker:Over the past couple years, administration officials have picked up a marker and taken to our “White House white board” to explain how to fix our immigration system, break down how health reform helps your day-to-day life, and outline exactly what our budget’s paying for.Today, Vice President Joe Biden is taking the pen, and he’s talking about something he knows like the back of his hand:

The current state of our country’s crumbling roads and bridges — and exactly why it’s so important to invest in them right now.

You’re going to want to watch this one. Take a look, and pass it on:

Watch the VP discuss our nation's infrastructure.

Our roads and bridges do far more than get people and goods from Point A to Point B.

A high-quality transportation system keeps jobs here in America, allows our businesses to grow, and keeps down the prices of household goods.

Our country’s infrastructure crisis isn’t a far-off problem: 65% of our major roads are rated in less than good condition. 25% of our bridges require significant repair or can’t handle today’s traffic.

It looks like Congress is going to act soon to pass a short-term resolution that would continue to fund the projects fixing our roads and bridges — but we need to solve the problem, not just kick the can down the road.

Watch the Vice President explain the need for a long-term investment, and break down exactly what our plan looks like.

Then, be sure to pass this one on.
