Why make this political? And why single out the democratic party in such a way that portrays them as the cause, then defend the flip side of that by blaming the media or anti-Trump politics? You do see how arrogant this post was don't you?^^Except it received federal funding from Obama's TIGER V program as early as 2013, which likely set conditions over who is awarded contracts. Knowing Democrats and their knack for pay-to-play corruption, combined with Miami's own favoritism, this is no surprise.
The media and useful idiots are so desperate to connect this to President Trump via Paul Manafort, as their Russia conspiracy is on life support.
This comes down to an engineering failure from the start, that thing had no center support, and for a cable stayed or suspension platform that's really not safe. Nearly every other cable stayed bridge has a center support column beneath, or it would have a tall mast like support above. Here, we see neither. The road beneath would have to lose a lane if they did that, and whatever their alternative, the solution failed.
My condolences to those who lost their loved ones in the cars that got crushed below, and hope their mourning is short lived, and their grief does not wallow.....we as Americans all need to start working together to make this place safer, regardless of what we have to give up and what we have to sacrifice from our own wants and desires, so that others can feel safe in public and live just that way.... Only our own selfish pride gets in the way of progress.
