quote [ Connecticut U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal has joined a bipartisan effort to introduce a new infrastructure financing authority to help municipalities secure private funds for projects.
Blumenthal, joined by fellow Democratic Senator Mark Warner of Virginia and Republican Senator Roy Blunt of Montana, says the bill addresses the investment shortfall in maintaining the nation’s declining infrastructure ]
This pisses me off on soooooo many levels. First and foremost, this country has tried private infrastructure. It worked so well and was so good for the economy that the state took over funding it.(see: "shunpike") Goddamn government just wants to fuck up anything good and pure.
Secondly, please don't tell me it's le Trompe and the republicans that are destroying this country. They have plenty of help. I believe these assholes DO accurately represent their districts. I work in the pointy end of government services. People DO NOT WANT TO PAY FOR THE SERVICES THEY DEMAND. Think that's not so?, fuck you, come in to work with me for a day.
