Update on the Jobs Bill


You know that jobs bill that everyone was talking about last week? You know, the one with the provision in it that would create jobs by repairing all the crumbling bridges around the country, say, for example, the Sherman bridge?

It’s dead.


I suppose the Sherman bridge will be repaired by the magic of the free market.

Or trickle-down economics.

Or maybe, just maybe, Congress will acknowledge that infrastructure upkeep is actually kind of a big deal, and will pass that provision as a separate measure.

But probably not.

If there’s one thing this Congress is really good at, it’s the metaphorical cutting off of the nose to spite the face.

Happy driving!
