For reasons I can't understand, we're marking the 5th anniversary of the economic stimulus this week with celebrations of sorts. Administration officials have fanned out all over the country to tout successes-VP Biden will be in Granite City today at one of the steel companies.
Judging from St. Louis and other states we've driven through the past 5 years, I'd say most of the money went to state transportation for road construction. St. Louis has been in a continual state of road construction ever since 2009. It's like they have so much money they're just making stuff up in order to tear things up and jam traffic. How many times has the same portions of 64/40 been worked on? And the bridges?
How about we look to putting all this money somewhere else.
