"Reason Online" editorial about bridge collapse

I thought that this article was relavent to the local debate regarding certain spending projects. Apparently Minnesota had enough money to spend on a new ballpark, yet Washington is going to send $250 million to build a new bridge.

Good article Robert...the money quote "The bridge didn't collapse because Minnesota couldn't afford to maintain it. The bridge collapsed because the state had other priorities, unrelated to the proper functions of government."

That pretty well sums it up!

I love Minnesota, I was there two weeks ago and spent a lot of tourism dollars, which I don't mind, however I don't want my federal income tax dollars fixing their bridges, when they are perfectly capable of paying for it themselves.
