The tornado that devastated Moore, Okla., was still wreaking havoc when Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse decided to blame red state climate deniers, so it should surprise no one that, before any details are available, the Republicans are taking the blame for causing the Skagit River Bridge collapse Thursday. President Obama was totally going to fix that bridge with all that stimulus money, you guys, but you stood in his way.
Starting count down to see how long before first Dem. blames bridge collapse on GOP and sequester.—

The I-5 bridge collapse could be the first of many if the GOP keeps blocking spending that will fix bridges and create jobs.—

Another bridge collapse, another day for republicans to pass up infrastructure spending.—

The GOP congress don't care about the Obama infrastructure roads and bridge repairs, because they will just fly over them in their jets.—

Holy shit, skagit bridge down. Hope nobody too seriously injured or dead. Hey republicans, vote for fixing infrastructure. Stop being dicks—

It’s difficult to swallow the idea that the GOP is opposed to infrastructure spending, especially considering that Senate Republicans in 2009 had proposed an alternative stimulus including $114 billion for infrastructure projects, although tax cuts made the plan unpalatable to the Democrat majority.
So, where did all of that $700 billion in stimulus money go (beside bogus green energy investments)? Maybe we can check into that after we make sure everyone is out of the water first?
