Republicans Note Obama Chose Wrong Bridge For Jobs Plan Visit

The problem is that the bridge is in fine condition, according to The Los Angeles Times.

The Brent Spence Bridge, a structure that connects Ohio and Kentucky, doesn’t need the repairs just yet, despite the President making a statement about the necessity for action concerning a rebuilding effort. Construction is more than four years away, showing the disconnect that the White House has with the fundamental problems within the country, reported the newspaper.

“The Brent Spence Bridge is technically not a shovel-ready project,” Geoff Davis (R-Ky.) told Fox News.

The proposed project would need more than $500 million from State and local authorities, on top of the $1.9 billion from the Federal government. Republican leaders have mocked Obama due to the fact that only $90 million has been generated so far, according to the news outlet.

“Obama’s stimulus rhetoric fails to span the gap to Realityville,” the Republican National Committee said in a memo concerning the lack of practical planning.
