  • Transportation "On Life Support"

    November 24, 2014

    But where to get money to fix the broken system?

    Many of the roads and bridges Americans drive on every day are “on life support,” said former US Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood on the lead segment of 60 Minutes Nov. 23. According to 60 Minutes:

    The public infrastructure crisis is damaging the American economy, hurting our ability to compete globally and threatening the public safety. Everyone in government knows it, but no one can figure out where the money is going to come from – one more example of the political paralysis gripping Washington.

    There are a lot of people in the US right now who think the country is falling apart, and at least in one respect, they are correct: Our roads and bridges are crumbling, our airports are out of date, and the vast majority of our seaports are in danger of becoming obsolete – all the result of decades of neglect. None of this is really in dispute.

    There is still no consensus on how to solve the problem or where to get the massive amounts of money needed to fix it. Just another example of political paralysis in Washington.
