Dukakis To Transportation Nation: You Were “Dead Wrong” on Romney and Infrastructure

“You were dead wrong. When Romney left the governorship, the state was a wreck– rusting bridges, potholed roads, a great transit system that had serious financial problems he refused to fix, and a pathetic inability to get anything done. Projects that should have taken months took years, and his ” fix it first” program was a joke.”

To be fair I found this positive spin:

&quot;Still, Romney’s resistance to building lots of new transit infrastructure may be an indicator of exactly the kind of fix-it-first mentality he’s known for — and a sign that crumbling infrastructure was, indeed, a major concern of his. After all, Boston has the oldest transit system in the country, with badly deteriorating infrastructure. Former Boston transportation official Ted Brown says it was “admirable ” that Romney gave capital projects a back seat to focus on maintenance.&quot;
