Road Construction, Montagu, Western Cape, South Africa, comparison to Wisconsin, USA

We all understand that Governor Scott Walker of the State of Wisconsin is running for reelection in 2018.  We also understand that to get re-elected he needs to follow the Republican playbook of cutting taxes for the very wealthiest mega-donors and large corporations.  We also understand that to pay for those incentives to the very wealthy he needs to slash social programs and cut expenditures for infrastructure programs.

It just boggles my mind that a country like South Africa which is suffering from an economic downturn, with excessive government corruption stealing from the country’s revenue coffers, and experiencing high inflation, can find the funds to attend to necessary improvements to roads, bridges, and rail.  Scott should visit South Africa to learn what could and should be done to fix our State.  This example is for two small towns and national road links from Ashton to Montagu in the Western Cape, South Africa.
