FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- A recently released White House report says Connecticut has the worst roads and bridges in the country, according to the Hartford Business Journal. 

The report was released in an effort to persuade Congress to pass a $302 billion bill to improve infrastructure around the nation. The report said that 41 percent of roads in Connecticut are in poor condition and that 35 percent of the 4,218 bridges in the state were structurally deficient or functionally obsolete, the Hartford Business Journal said. 

Nationwide the study says 65 percent of roads are in less than good condition and 25 percent of bridges can't handle current traffic loads. 

According to the report, if the bill is not passed, 9,612 jobs in the Nutmeg State will be jeopardized and more than 1,600 infrastructure projects will either be slowed or stopped.

NOW FOR MY PITIFUL LIFE

I am 60 years old and a complete failure
I have no J.O.B.
I played in a go nowhere garage band and they kicked me out
I am a meth head
I am a coke head
I have a wine enema fetish
My rear end leaks do to me putting things in it.
I had 2 cars repoed
My house was foreclosed
I live in the shelter
I post from the public library
I am a stupid racist
I am a racist because I am jealous that most if not all blacks are smarter than I am
I hate Obama because he has done so well for himself at such a young age
I hate Obama because I am such a failure at such an old old age.
My x-wife caught me in bed with a black dude
My x-wife kicked me to the curb because she caught me in bed with a black dude
My wee no longer woks do to my bad prostate
I tend to wet the bed when high

AS YOU CAN ALL SEE MY LIFE SUCKS AND I AM A COMPLETE AND TOTAL FAILURE.

Great site

Yes we all understand you are obsessed with some man. Thanks for pointing this out once again...

Please call me queen

Too bad the loser who posts at 4:am wasn't playing in traffic.

that would solve a troll problem

Yes doing yourself in would solve our troll problem

Queen any luck finding your parents

We are the fools for not voting ALL OF THEM out of office. Corrupt, inept people squandered your money.

This is all due to years of neglect by past republican Governors

Nat,

You have a one track mind. Governor can only execute the budget that is passed by the legislature....particularly when the Gov.'s party is totally outvoted by the permanent legislative majority.

RG
You seem to have an issue with the facts

Can you tell us in your own words these so called "facts" you claim?

Do not answer with another user name, do not reply to yourself with another user name, do not beg the moderator for help, do not respond with gay spam.
Just tell us whatever "facts" you are making up once again. You may even use my user name if that makes you feel mighty!

Queen
Please tell us in your own words why you trollthe Ct sites when you live in the ghetto Port Chester.. Also please tell us why your parents didn't want you.
Do not ignore these questions like the coward that you are.

Odd, always goes back to his obsession with a guy from Port Chester. I hope that guy has a restraining order.
So you basically cannot answer a single question asked to you.
You are the reason people laugh at Obama, you are his voting base.
No wonder our country is laughed at...

Queen you changed user names from natsgarage to Norwalktroll but that doesn't chage the question that you are terrified to answer.
Please tell us in your own words why you trollthe Ct sites when you live in the ghetto Port Chester.. Also please tell us why your parents didn't wan, t you.
Do not ignore these questions like the coward that you are.

He is a troll using my username FYI

RG
You seem to be full of excuses.. Funny how you right wing kooks forget that the Governor is the chief executive of the state. The buck stops at his desk for success as in Malloy and for failure as in the convicted felon Republican Rowland and the republican Grandma Rell.

Does this surprise anyone in CT?

Now, the question is, will the bridges be repaired or replaced before someone, or many people, get killed? Think about that every time you drive over or under one of our bridges!

If our elected officials (in Hartford and Washington) really wanted to end unemployment and create new jobs, they would take a play from President Eisenhower's book and repair Americas horrible infrastructure!!

wait, didnt we just do that in 2009?
we gave the obama admin a trillion dollars. an amount that would fill a football stadium to the top with cash.
how many times will people fall for the scam?

so, in other words, the $787,000,000,000.00 that obama promised was for "shovel ready jobs" and would "generate 4% GDP growth" was a complete failure. (worst roads and negative 3% GDP)

sorry kids....that's ANOTHER trillion you owe.

Thanks to the filthy republicans

Nats,
the republicans had close to nothing to do with this...democrat controlled Congress and Executive branch....

you OWN it. yet blame others. why am i not surprised....

Look closely, he is a troll just click on his user name to see all the SPAM

Republican Chief Executive buck stops at his desk.. You own it..Those are the facts

Let's see one party has controlled both houses of the state Legislature . . .and the budgetary purse strings . . . basically forever. This is what one party rule gets us. This State is "shovel ready" for the grave.
