On the very day when the Sock Puppet and his evil handlers are visiting Pittsburgh to brag about their mostly-fake “infrastructure” bill that passed congress with bipartisan majorities in 2021, this happened:
Honestly, it’s all just too perfect for words. Fortunately, no one suffered serious injuries in the collapse.
Here’s an excerpt from that story at NPR:
At least 10 people were injured when a snow-covered bridge in Pittsburgh collapsed early Friday, just hours before President Biden was due to visit the city to highlight his push for infrastructure improvement.
A short time later, Pittsburgh Public Safety said there was a strong smell of gas in the area and confirmed that a gas line had been cut. It added that the Red Cross had been contacted for "victim assistance."
Three of the 10 people who were hurt were taken to the hospital, according to Pittsburgh Public Safety. They said the injuries were not life-threatening.
Look, the country has needed congress to act to fund real, major projects to deal with the nation’s crumbling infrastructure. From roads and bridges to the power grid to airports to shipping ports and much more, the country’s hard infrastructure has been in need of massive government works projects for decades now.
Unfortunately, Democrats in congress very predictably spend much of 2021 defining all of their socialist agenda as being “infrastructure,” and loading up the bill with hundreds of billions in wasteful spending. Thus, congress ended up passing a bill with a total nominal price tag of $1.2 trillion that contains only about $300 billion in actual, real infrastructure spending.
And we can reliably count on government bureaucrats to waste a big portion of that $300 billion on stuff that isn’t really critical infrastructure, as the Obama administration managed to do after the passage of its 2009 $900 billion “stimulus” bill that Obama claimed would address all sorts of “shovel-ready projects”. In reality, that money ended up mainly being used to raise the baseline budgets of all the Democrats’ favored social welfare programs.
In other words, despite its obviously decrepit state of disrepair that led to its collapse, it is highly unlikely that the “infrastructure” bill would have been used to rebuild that particular bridge in Pittsburgh.
It is a bridge collapse that serves as the perfect metaphor for this entire fraudulent administration.
That is all.
