Bridges Or Iraq?
U.S. taxpayers have paid more than $600 billion to fight wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which includes tens of billions of dollars to rebuild bridges, roads and other infrastructure improvements. NBC News reported tonight that 13% of our nation's bridges are "structurally deficient." The cost for making all those bridges safe? $65 billion. Looks like a bargain to me.
