No matter what your political views are, the nation’s highways and bridges are aging and many are in dire need of repair. Many member of Congress disagree about how the nation’s Highway Trust Fund should be saved from insolvency, but it needs to be saved nonetheless.

We frequently write about the kinds of poor decisions and human errors which lead to devastating auto accidents. Distracted driving, drunk driving, drowsy driving and aggressive driving are all unquestionably problematic behaviors and should be halted. However, even if all motorists behave responsibly and drive safely, accidents cannot be avoided if the roads we all drive on are riddled with hazards.
The urgent need to rebuild and modernize our Interstate highway infrastructure is bogged down by a system that prioritizes politics and ribbon-cutting. The federal gas tax has become a general purpose public works tax instead of a true highway user fee. It is past time to refocus the federal program, and restore the true user fee nature of the federal fuel tax, and solve this dog knot once and for all.
I give you one thing: the democrats with their pick in Obama for president sure did a great job DESTROYING all the GOOD things in America! Now all that's left is a huge mess for the people and conservatives to clean up once again. Dems destroy everything they touch!!!
Yeah because Obama, the democrat party's favorite radical liberal president has plans of his own; to send our money to his pals who pretended they were going to do something wonderful with 'solar energy.' Then we watched while all that money was squandered and NOT spent on what his pals said; all the solar companies went bankrupt as expected. WHO GOT THE $$$ and where did it go?? Good luck finding out as the LIBERAL biased media never even reported on it much less 'investigated' it. Oh, in case you're a little slow....Obama/dems own the media too. Enjoy the one-sided socialist media folks. You must do your own investigating now for TRUTH!!!
