"The project was made possible through the federal stimulus, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009". Thank you President Obama, without the country's help, the residents of Marco Island would have had to pay to leave and return to our own homes via tolls. What has the Repubican Party done to improve the infrastructure of Southwest or all of Florida? What bills have they advanced to improve the unemployment problems we have? What bills have they initited to bring our property values back? When is the U.S. House of Representatives going to start working to dig us out of this recession? When is our Governor going to fullfil his campaign promise and improve the economy enough to increase jobs? Jobs is what the American people want, NOT cuts in taxes for the richest amongst us. NOT 15% tax rates for capital gains. NOT a tax system in which Corporations like GE evade their obligation to pay any tax at all. The new bridge span was built and paid for by the combined efforts of ALL the people of the United States and our great State of Florida. Wouldn't it be nice if the Corporations of America and the richest of us had helped in this effort? Today, only the wage earner contributes, the rest give their money to political campaigns and lobbyists to ensure their continued control of all the wealth of this great nation.
