Garrett vs. Standing Bridges

Well, Representative Scott Garrett certainly does make it easy on those being paid to write the ads that are going to be run against him (no, I'm not one of them).

I'm not actually talking about the Housing bill that Garrett voted against yesterday. Sure, he's going to get beat up on some of the stuff in there. But, if any of us are truly honest, his opposition to yet another bail out bill probably works in his favor.

No, I'm talking about this:

See, that is the fatal I-35 bridge collapse, and Garrett was one of 37 Members of the House to vote against restoring money to the Highway Trust Fund yesterday.

In the event, with everything else going on you forgot in what dire shape our roads are in, you can get a refresher here.
