The yesterday during rush hour. The span of the bridge that collapsed reached from University to Washington Avenues, the entire stretch that spans the Mississippi.

In Minnesota, we’ve had Republican rule for some time, since the last election when Democrats gained control of the state legislature. A Democrat has not served as Governor since the 80s.

I’ve been for quite a while and at the end of the day, I’ve gotta think that we’re going to find out that this collapse is a result of our state leadership underfunding transportation. This is what happens when you starve government. As you can tell, I’m pissed.

    I agree totally! The “no new taxes” republicans, once again, screw us over, and this is what happens!I am sick and tired of these morons taking over the country, especially our Minnesota, which USED to be a much better place to live when it was more blue!! No, you have to be a g__damn republican-loving puppet making boocoo bucks just to make it here, and for what? They keep cutting public safety, schools, and infrastructure in general! As long as they make the money, they could give a damn about the rest of us!! Thats a fact!!
