Dredging Robbery

Apr 15, 2013

Boats are running aground in the Great Lakes because the big ports and channels haven’t been dredged. There should be money to dredge. In fact, the trust fund responsible for this activity has a surplus on paper of six billion dollars.

But like other trust funds–Social Security and highways, for example–the money was used in gifts to the banks and corporations.

No wonder the infrastructure is falling apart!
