American Infrastructure

The government has released reports on the infrastructure of each state in relation to the recent Jobs Plan.  Most states got C or C- grades.  None got higher than a C+ and there were multiple states with D or D- grades.  The4 government has done a piss-poor job of maintaining basic infrastructure over wide areas.  As they attempt to repair and replace the worst parts -- which is a good idea and urgently needed -- sooner or later someone in a position of actual power is going to notice the massive maintenance debt bedeviling most cities, and realize that the huge infrastructure bill just passed is a drop in the bucket of what's needed.  Regrettably the plan is likely to make matters worse.
