Our View: Getting detoured on our way to a smart road fix

If we found this even remotely humorous, we’d mention the “bumpy road” the House of Representatives took to finally reach a deal to allow roadwork to continue this summer. But no one is laughing about a fix that should have been passed months ago. No one is applauding a compromise that gave more money to corporate citizens by allowing them to reduce payments to their pension funds so they’ll have more short-term profit, then counting on the taxes on that extra profit to fix the roads.
