The federal gov't should not be funding local bridges.

What is the point of local and state roads if they all have to beg Washington for money?

But this is what you get when you put too much power in a central gov't. They get all the money and then get to decide who gets it back.

Agreed.

IMHO if PA's GOP Governor and PA's GOP controlled state House & Senate think it's prudent to fix the bridges, then they should fund bridge repair.

IMHO if the Feds step in, there is no intensive for states to take care of their own affairs AND actually encourages states to do nothing and wait for the Feds come to the rescue.

Lastly, taking Federal money to fix PA's problems is paramount to stealing the tax dollars of the hard working people of the other 49 states.
