Letters: America crumbles, Congress fiddles

January 08, 2013

Re "The storm next time," Editorial, Jan. 4

There have been documentaries, news stories and policy proposals that focus on infrastructure (President Obama's jobs bill comes to mind). We have watched people die in Minnesota when a bridge collapsed, we in California faced regular rolling blackouts, and many states have had horrible floods, fires, tornadoes or hurricanes.

Until all 50 state governors get together and demand a national policy and funding for infrastructure and the business community backs them up, we will just keep reacting to the most recent disaster. Face it: Leadership certainly won't come from Congress.
