Pretty sure China built it.

Here is a fun little tool to put things into perspective.
www.usdebtclock.org

Compare Michigan 2013 budgeted road construction(119M) to New York (It is high) http://www.nasbo.org/summaries_FY2013_proposed_budgets

Then compare Michigan's debt

http://www.usdebtclock.org/state-deb...ebt-clock.html

To New York's

http://www.usdebtclock.org/state-deb...ebt-clock.html

Looking at the projected tax increases NY will see over the next few years I am very glad I am from Michigan.

Guess who is spending tons(and getting tons of gov aid) to repair there roads.

Let me just ask this. Does it make more sense to have 1 new 10 lane bridge or maintain 5 40+year old 2 lane bridges from a financial perspective. Ok, now someone tell NY that.
Less highways, less bridges, less maintenance, more lanes, less congestion, better enforcement, = less national debt.

The major Rail companies figured this out YEARS ago.

Apparently he thinks most people earning under about $30,000 are worthless leaches on the system.
mitt was telling the truth. i see it everyday people looking for a free hand out. he never said he think most people earning under about 30,000 are worthless leaches on the system. he want to guide americans to earn more and not be dependant on government. i dont know about you or any other but mitt romney wasnt my first choice but he is way better than obama and biden. i dont want to live on food stamps and get handed free hand outs. i want to have the opportunities of getting a well paid job and support my family with out the help of government. that 47% of people you wont ever change their mind about voting for obama. because they dont want to work they want free hand outs by all the tax payers.

RE: The 47%

The man that robs Peter to pay Paul will always have the support of Paul.
