Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?


Can you take a photo to help create jobs?

Take a photo of an example of our failing infrastructure to show Congress that America has jobs that need doing.

Submit your photo

Yesterday, President Obama spoke from the Brent Spence bridge over the Ohio River about the vital connection between jobs and infrastructure repair.1 The Brent Spence bridge has been rated functionally obsolete and unsafe, it carries nearly twice the traffic it was designed to handle, and earlier this year, chunks of concrete fell from its upper level.2 And it isn't the only essential piece of infrastructure that's falling apart.3

It's shameful that our bridges are literally crumbling while construction workers are unable to find employment. America's infrastructure needs work, and Americans need jobs. The solution is obvious: Put people back to work repairing our bridges, dams, highways, schools, and the rest of our failing infrastructure.
We're putting pressure on Congress to pass a jobs plan that does just that. But we need to make the problem visible. That's why the American Dream movement is setting out to find and photograph the jobs that need doing—and we need your help.  Can you take a picture of a job that needs doing in your community? It could be a bridge, dam, road, school, levee, or any other piece of our infrastructure that needs repair.
We want to bring this problem home to members of Congress. That means showing pictures of disrepair in their own districts.  We'll deliver a compilation of your pictures to Congress and use them to remind the public of all the ways our communities could be improved if we put the millions of people who are unemployed back to work.
Can you help out by adding a photo of infrastructure in your area that needs repair?
After you add your photo to the collection, pass this on to family and friends across the country. Together we'll use these images to make this a problem Congress can't continue to ignore.
Thanks for all you do.
