    Not a big fan of Politico, personally, but found this to be interesting:

    Candidates steer clear of transportation before Iowa


    So why don't the other guys want to talk about trans and infrastructure?

    To do so would mean that they will commit to spending money for the benefit of all Americans and we just can't have that. It isn't going to get any cheaper to repair/upgrade our roads, bridges, power grid and so forth but it almost seems like they are waiting for a sale.

    Or for a few more bridges to collapse.

    The real reason is that a comprehensive program of road construction and grid upgrades would look a hell of a lot like a commie stimulus program and cost several times more. Americans are just not worth the trouble anymore.
