Desperate Need For Infrastructure Obvious After Train Tragedy In NYC

It has been stated for the past five years by the Obama Administration, that there is a dire need for infrastructure spending, not only to create jobs as part of the economic recovery, but also to upgrade our deteriorating transportation system, whether highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, seaports, or train systems all across America.

Now with the train tragedy in New York City yesterday, the emphasis on the need to do something to upgrade our entire infrastructure shouts out at us more than ever, but the Republican Party has its head in the sand, and will not promote funding for what is essential for the American future.

We are now 14th in infrastructure statistics worldwide, and this is simply not sustainable for the long run, and the nation will suffer dramatically unless a drastic change in attitude, and willingness to fund growth, is accomplished!

    I think either it was some kind of malfunction, like maybe the brakes failed, or the engineer was doing something like texting.

    If the engineer was texting, we should all be furious, as when one is on the job, all texting should be banned. I do not appreciate it when, even in a restaurant or business, the workers are texting, as that distracts them from their work, and it is extremely rude to do it in front of customers or patients or clients. There is a time and place to text, and it is not when driving or working at any job, as concentration and focusing is essential no matter what the job.
