Every passing year of corrupt complacency adds to the principal, so to speak, and the interest has become prohibitive. Our government invests primarily in our wealthiest families, who haven't spent the last decades repairing things.

We are never going to catch up. The best we can possibly hope for is half-assed maintenance on the worst failures, and only after they fail catastrophically.
