Go to the DOT or the Homeland Security website and check on the condition of our bridges and read up on some of the stop-gap measures being employed to "shore them up". Truly awe inspiring. Can't fix bridges but if you want an Obamaphone they've got ya covered.

The reason I'm not giving you the links is because they're government websites. They're not obscure therefore they're considered general and common knowledge and I as a rule will not spoon feed someone information so readily available.
1. What is an "Obamaphone" ?

2. Telephones are pretty necessary things. A friend of mine had a seizure a few days ago. We called an ambulance with an Assurance Wireless (govt subsidized phone). If we had not had that phone, my friend would have died, according to the ER doctor.

As for the infrastructure, the 2 most probably needed ones in America are the Wolf Creek Dam in southern Kentucky and the central California delta levees, both of which I wrote OPs on.

They don't, because the know IT WILL JUST BE WASTED!!!
The classic cop-out on raising taxes. This can be easily offset by creating a designated tax in which the funds raised go only to certain uses (ex. the Wolf Creek Dam, or the California delta levees)
