Republican John McCain said Wednesday that the bridge collapse in Minnesota that killed 13 people last year would not have happened if Congress had not wasted so much money on pork-barrel spending.

Actually, a portion the money to repair bridges and roads comes from the tax on gasoline that he wants to abolish, on top of the general Federal funds for infrastructure that Republicans have already gutted. The rest comes from state governments that are underfunded due to a lingering revenue crisis that has been in effect since Bush's first recession in 2001. Federal investment stimulates the economy and could have increased state governments' revenues. Obviously, McCain is against that too.
