At work, I was kidding around with my friends that someone out there is getting together a story titled, "Bridge collapse: Bush's fault" or
something along those lines.
I don't see the infrastructure of the US falling apart like some people fear. Things aren't being neglected because there's no money for repairs.
Outside of my home, the PennDOT just put in a brand new bridge over the river for the Turnpike.
In Northern NY, where I'm from, a nearby town just had a dam that was something like 100 years old replaced. (Of course, I'm not going to bring up
the fact it breached 6 months or so after it was replaced!!)
Money had been set aside for the New Orleans levees yearly. This was going on way before Bush and Iraq were in the news. Where did that money go?
"Literally millions of Americans have died earlier than they should have as a result of Republicans blocking health care reform. We could have
guaranteed universal health care as far back as President Truman. Republicans have always falsely stated that guaranteed universal health care was
just not financially possible." - Is this Bush's fault? Since Truman? Several democratic Presidents between Truman and Bush. I think they all felt
the same: Universial Health Care isn't the answer. I just heard something about that on the radio, saying they want UHC for everyone "up to 65".
What happens after that? Cut off? Or do I get to rely on the wonderful Medicare/Medicaid system?
