Cumberland, Maryland, like thousands of other cities & towns across America, has some serious infrastructure issues. Here are some photos I took yesterday, all within a 200 foot area. Have you seen similar infrastructure problems in cities & towns near you?
See, "Senate GOP blocks $60B Obama infrastructure plan," USA Today, November 3, 2011.
...and see, "Paul Ryan's Budget Plan: More Big Tax Cuts for the Rich," Forbes, March 23, 2012.
...and see, "Ryan Proposes An Even Bigger Tax Cut For The Richest Americans," ThinkProgress, March 12, 2013.
...and see, "Another Ryan Budget Gives Millionaires Average Tax Cut of At Least $200,000," Citizens for Tax Justice, April 2, 2014.
So, while a New Year's resolution to repair our nation's infrastructure would be really nice....I think we can see what's going to happen instead.
