79,523 federally funded bridges are rated "functionally obsolete," meaning they need replacing.

What we need, dear friends, is nothing short of a revolution. If we are going to get our country back, we are going to have to TAKE it back.
There are things that NEED to be taken care of, that CANNOT be taken care of as long as the culture of criminal greed is promoted in our government. Government's JOB is to take care of the people's needs. PERIOD.
