Alleged Native American princess Elizabeth Warren starred in a campaign ad suggesting American be a little more like China and invest more in our infrastructure:
According to Warren, we clearly need to be more like China. There’s just one problem with that:
Three people were killed and five injured when an eight-lane suspension bridge in northeast China collapsed early on Friday, only nine months after it opened, state media said.
The bridge, part of an airport expressway in Harbin city, only opened last November after two years of construction that cost 1.9 billion yuan ($300 million), China News Service reported.
A 320-foot section broke off when four heavy trucks drove onto the bridge, plunging them to the ground and crushing them, said a CCTV news reporter at the scene. The bridge was designed to handle up to 9,800 vehicles per hour.
Two people were killed on the spot, a third died later, and five remain in hospital for treatment, the report said, adding that authorities were investigating the cause of the accident.
I’m sure the families of those who died will be nicely compensated by the Communist rulers who oversaw the construction of the bridge.
Meanwhile, in Warren’s mind, she’s probably reveling in the idea that a collapsed bridge just means a bunch of jobs were created!
Which brings us to this:
Think of all the jobs that would be created if more American bridges were collapsing and killing people.
