What stimulus? GOP blamed for Washington State bridge collapse

The tornado that devastated Moore, Okla., was still wreaking havoc when Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse decided to blame red state climate deniers, so it should surprise no one that, before any details are available, the Republicans are taking the blame for causing the Skagit River Bridge collapse Thursday. President Obama was totally going to fix that bridge with all that stimulus money, you guys, but you stood in his way.

Much less than an hour.

It’s difficult to swallow the idea that the GOP is opposed to infrastructure spending, especially considering that Senate Republicans in 2009 had proposed an alternative stimulus including $114 billion for infrastructure projects, although tax cuts made the plan unpalatable to the Democrat majority.

So, where did all of that $700 billion in stimulus money go (beside bogus green energy investments)? Maybe we can check into that after we make sure everyone is out of the water first?
