Targeted tax cuts and rebuilding America should be the Goal! Cutting 3.8 trillion on the backs of those already hurting will work if one more plan will be implemented and that is to rebuild our failing infrastructure. It worked for FDR and it will work for us if Republicans stop trying to make us and Obama fail. If not get rid of those SOB's! US Debt Proposal Would Cut Social Security, Medicare suppposedly saving 3.8 trillion
The tragic collapse of the I-35 bridge in Minneapolis was a wake up call to pay attention to our decaying infrastructure. But really, this bridge was the third wake up call for the United States to reevaluate how we treat critical infrastructure. The first was 9/11, which showed us that infrastructure is vulnerable to terrorism. Hurricane Katrina was a second wake up call, which showed us that infrastructure is vulnerable to natural disasters. This time, we know that infrastructure is vulnerable to use, age, and neglect.
**Our bridges are crumbling. 590,750:Number of bridges in the United States. 160,570: Number of bridges in the United States rated structurally deficient or functionally obsolete* as of 2003. It’s not just bridges. The 50-year-old interstate highway system is decaying and in need of modernization, too. Funding levels aren’t even adequate for basic maintenance. And it’s not just bridges and roads. Infrastructure of all types faces neglect and funding shortfalls. Tunnels, Dams, everything is failing and Bush wants to ignore it while giving the wealthy back more taxes? If he cared about Average American's and our America not his, he would do just what I suggest. How can he be this openly ignorant? Look at these stats
**The world has a vested interest in us getting it together and bringing America back. All countries by now must realize their once wish to see America fail means failure for them too. Rebuilding our economy and our country is in the best interest of the world. The only ones that can want failure is the Republicans and that is sick putting party before country.
