    America has an infrastructure bill. What happens next?
    https://www.brookings.edu › the-avenue › 2021/11/09
    Nov 9, 2021 — Late Friday, November 5th, the House of Representatives passed the Senate version of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA)


    It appears that nothing happened.

    Where is the $1.2 trillion?

    So, that means Biden's agenda is justified if not a little light. Our infrastructure shames the modern world. Europe has maintained buildings, etc that vastly predate our country and have modern ones that aren't deteriorating faster than they are being fixed.

    Maybe there weren't any little girls down there for him to grope. Too cold, perhaps?

    Anyway, then Shamala would be Cackler-in-Chief. Who wants that?

    Think so?

    Remind me; how many DEMOCRATS voted in favor of the infrastructure plan that was proposed in the last administration?

    Is that so?

    The collapse of a bridge in northwestern Italy that killed 43 people was a result of problems in the structure's conception, design, construction and, more recently, maintenance that led to corrosion in some steel cables that ultimately snapped, according to an independent report that was made public on Monday.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2020/12/22/world/europe/genoa-bridge-collapse.html#:~:text=The%202018%20collapse%20of%2 0a,was%20made%20public%20on%20Monday.

    Yeah, that really does suck.

    And as many other virulent Trumpsuckers as could fit.

    I'm glad he escaped. Who wants Shamala to become the Cackler-in-Chief (besides her)?

    Just one more reason why it sucks that you weren't under that bridge.
