    i will give you a clue....my guess is every single job (and yes this is only a guess) it was UNION jobs that were created which is why they cost so much.

    Sounds about right. It costs $5 million to pave 1 mile of 4 lanes and how many people does it take to do that? Not many.

    Unfettered Socialism = Third World Misery. This nation is rapidly moving towards Third World misery and you can thank the Socialist loons for this. I said before the Election that our entire nation would soon resemble the Third World Nightmare in Chicago if the Socialist/Marxist "Community Organizer" was elected. I feel i am being proven more & more correct every day. I'm not happy though because this really is very very sad. Make 2010 count people. Get out and vote.
