Heck Yeah

Yesterday, during a campaign stop in California, Hillary Clinton promised a massive infrastructure plan, which is also a jobs plan, in her first 100 days as president. WOOT!

In my first 100 days, I will send a plan to Congress to make the biggest, most forward-looking investment in American infrastructure in fifty years! [applause] I will put forth a plan that is as big—in fact, bigger in some ways—than what President Eisenhower did when he created the interstate highway system! [applause] Why would I do that? Because that's how we're gonna create the next generation of jobs for people—good jobs with rising incomes!
Which is pretty damn good news, given that [CN: video autoplays at link] a CNN investigation found "that more than 60,000 bridges have been deemed structurally deficient" and "200 million drive over structurally deficient bridges daily."

This is exactly the kind of stuff I want to be hearing from my candidate.
