After yesterday's tragic bridge collapse, many commented on the sad state of American infrastructure. This is beyond merely bridges. In my state, the roads are such a shamble that no one needs a sign to determine when they have left or entered the state. There are schools in this country with inadequate electrical, plumbing and ventilation systems. In some places, hospitals are overcrowded. Millions of people are dependent upon water being pumped from far too far and across the country, too much water, both ground and surface, is being consumed.
At the same time, we have millions who have jobs which pay minimum wage or lack benefits. We have no idea how many people our unemployment numbers no longer include.
The Democratic presidential candidates need to step up and say no more. Our Federal government needs to rebuild America. It is time to bring a return of the Works Progress Administration.
So the question I put to you, is do you think the Dems need to start talking about rebuilding America and what do you think it should encompass?
