If you read the editorial, you will find that the proposed bridge over the St. Croix river is not nearly as expensive as the liberals would have you believe.
The $500M figure being bandied about as far to expensive is, after looking at costs, totally inaccurate. Thr actual cost to build the bridge is $292M. The figure was driven up by anther $340M to "preserve habitat". Unless there is some rare snail darter living where this bridge is proposed, I do not think there is any critical habitat that needs that level of protection. Just build it!
