Watching #AmericanSwamp w/ @KatyTurNBC & @jacobsoboroff on Infrastructure. (great job btw)

Every member of Congress should spend a week in the seat next to one of our countries long haul truck driver to truly see how bad our #infrastructure is.

1/....
@KatyTurNBC @jacobsoboroff We as a country need to bite the bullet and raise the gas tax. Not only to support funding the of a massive improvement of the infrastructure.....

America is falling apart and next to nothing gets done at both ends of Pennsylvania Ave.

We must act now...

2/
@KatyTurNBC @jacobsoboroff Not only do we need to fix roads, but also the pipes that carries our water.

We have cities such as #FlintWaterCrisis #NewarkWaterCrisis that have lead in their water.

We also are losing vast amounts of water due to failing concrete pipes.....

@KatyTurNBC @jacobsoboroff Here our grades from the American Society of Civil Engineers' 2017 Infrastructure Report Card, which is published every four years

Thanks to @ASCETweets for the graphic

As a teacher, & more importantly an American, this is unacceptable

4/
@KatyTurNBC @jacobsoboroff @ASCETweets Leadership is needed in Washington DC and tough decisions must be made... both parties must step up and give and take for the good of the country.

What is happening to America is sickening... we can and must do better.

5/
@KatyTurNBC @jacobsoboroff @ASCETweets The time has long past for action, who among our leaders has the courage to do what is right for the America people and will truly put #CountryFirst and begin to solve the current crisis that we have in our failing American #infrastructure

6/
@KatyTurNBC @jacobsoboroff @ASCETweets Failing to do nothing is not an option for our #infrastructure.

It may be time for me to step up and once again put my name on the ballot and run for office.... we shall see.

Congress & POTUS #DoYourJob and solve this problem NOW
