    Our Crumbling Plan For Our Crumbling Infrastructure

    in Politics Conservative

    In the 1800s, railroad construction led to an explosion in the industrial revolution. No longer were towns reliant on close proximity to a waterway. New towns sprouted up everywhere. Cities grew and opportunities multiplied. ~~~~

    In 1956, President Eisenhower leading to 41,000 miles of interstate highway system over the next 10 years. Now people could live practically anywhere. New towns sprouted up everywhere. Cities grew and opportunities multiplied exponentially. ~~~~

    From our waterways to our electrical grid, our highways and biways and everything inbetween, the construction of Americas infrastructure has been instrumental in becoming the worlds most influential economy. 

    But as time passes, things age and no one disagrees that our infrastructure is crumbling and in dire need of attention. Will repairing our infrastructure have the same economic impact as building it did?

    Tune in tonight and we'll discuss this big problem that has been on the back burner for far too long.
