Proof your Tax-dollars are well spent!

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS OUR INFRASTRUCTURE IS FALLING APART AND WE NEED TO TOSS MORE DOLLARS AT THE PROBLEM.  IN SOME PLACES AS THIS IMAGE SHOWS THAT MAY BE THE CASE.  BUT IN THE PAST WE HAVE SPENT BILLIONS AND LIKE MOST GOVERNMENT PROGRAMS HAVE GOTTEN LITTLE FOR OUR MONEY.  THE CONTRACTORS WHO GET THE GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS ARE NOT THOSE WITH THE LOWEST BIDS, BUT THOSE WITH THE RIGHT POLITICAL CONNECTIONS.  THEY KNOW THAT SUB-STANDARD WORK IS THE NORM ON GOVERNMENT PROJECTS AND NOT THE EXCEPTION.  AND THAT IS NO PUNISHMENT FOR SHODDY WORK, BECAUSE THEY HAVE FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES.  CALLING FOR MORE SPENDING TO IMPROVE OUR INFRASTRUCTURE IS NOT THE ANSWER, BUT REFORMING THE WHOLE DAMN SYSTEM IS THE ONLY SOLUTION.  BUT PRESIDENT OBAMA WOULD NEVER, NEVER DO THAT BECAUSE HE SEES GOVERNMENT FUNDING AS A WAY TO BUY FAVOR FOR HIS POLITICAL FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS AND NOT A WAY OF MAKING REAL IMPROVEMENT.   YOU TAX DOLLARS ARE BEING WELL SPENT---WELL SPENT IN REWARDING CRONIES FOR THEIR SUPPORT AT VOTING TIME.
