Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) downplayed President Obama’s concern that Americans should not wait “until another bridge falls,” and in turn pass his jobs bill that promotes infrastructure improvements, saying that the bridges in her home state are safe.This bridge nonsense has shown Obama at his lowest. It's as if he wants a bridge to collapse just so he can justify raising taxes. It's pathetic.
“No, no there are not any bridges in North Carolina in danger of falling,” Hagan said to CNS News.
The president painted a bleaker picture during a Sept. 14 speech in North Carolina.
“In North Carolina alone, there are 153 structurally deficient bridges that need to be repaired. Four of them are near here, on or around the [Raleigh] Beltline. Why would we wait to act until another bridge falls?” Obama said.

NC Dem Senator: 'No, No There Are Not Any Bridges in North Carolina in Danger of Falling'
The only thing I can conclude from this is Obama is a shameless liar who would use fear to score cheap political points. Why am I not surprised?
