Someone Tell President Obama: American Bridges Aren't "Crumbling"

The only crumbling bridges are where the locals have taken money meant for maintenance and used it for bike and jogging paths. Priorities are skewed in this country. The solution is to always give government, at every level, LESS money, not more. When will we learn this lesson?
President Obama has been on a blitz while pushing what seems to be an evergreen priority for Democrats these days: "infrastructure investment." In his State of the Union speech, President Obama spoke of Merica's "deteriorating roads and bridges" and proposed what he called a "Fix-It-First" program that would see the government hire construction workers to work on America's infrastructure.

This worry is overblown. The Reason Foundation put out a report this week that found America's infrastructure is in fine shape, though there's certainly work to be done.
