    Angry Your stimulus dollars at waste!! Can we get some leadership in this country!!!

    Once again we have more evidence of Obamas inability and incompetence. Here we have a highly successful corporation, and Bill Gates a billionaire, receiving 11 million dollars to build a bridge.

    Critics slam Microsoft bridge as waste of stimulus money

    This is absolutely pathetic and a disgrace. Let's kick the tax payer in the groin some more!! Is anyone on capital hill paying attention???

    Microsoft is paying for half of the bridge, which will be open to the public.

    The bridge also cross a public highway.

    So it is, the first report didn't put it that way. I guess I can accept a mulit billion dollar corporation getting more tax dollars.

    Exactly.. according to the information that I was reading Microsoft Employees will acount for less than half of the people that will utilize it. Sounds like a win-win for both Microsoft and the public.

    No worries idiotboy. No one is ever going to accuse you of being smart enough to be thorough.

    I concur now. Heck, all I can do is blame the Clinton News Network for screwing that one up. I should have known better than to trust a liberal news outlet. What the heck was I thinking????

    It was in the article from day one in the link you posted.

    You fracked up and are trying to backpedal by placing the blame on CNN when it is your reading and comprehension skills that are sorely lacking.

    Sorry to disappoint you. But CNN has on many occasions modified the original article. The original article was much shorter. If you watch the CNN website you will see stories evolve over time, all pointing to the same link.
