Some food for thought

Some food for thought following the bridge collapse in Minneapolis:

On average, one bridge collapses, somewhere in the U.S., per week!

25 percent of bridges have been found "deficient".

1.6 trillion dollars is needed to bring the country's infrastructure into good condition.

Between Iraq and tax cuts, 1.6 trillion is hard to come by.
