    Holy shit how do republicans sleep at night 

  3. Turner Pendergrass says:

    We have to raise taxes, or we have to cut the military in half… which
    would be really bad since it is America’s #1 employer.

    Edit: On second thought, why don’t we make the military fix the roads? They
    should have plenty of practice from Iraq.

    This episode hit me right on, Cuz I bike for 50 minutes to work and college
    on uncompleted sidewalk and when it snows it gets covered up and no one
    cleans it, so I have to bike On the main road where cars going 50mp honking
    at me with no biking lane. My only guilty is I don’t have a car and I don’t
    want to chase and spend my money on a shitty public bus service that
    doesn’t operate on the weekends when I go to work.

  6. Austin Texas says:

    I’m embarrassed to be from Texas. I live in the worst state in the worst
    country in the world. It’s all about capitalism, a huge fucking rat race.

  7. ManiaMac1613 says:

    If the government taxed churches they would have enough money to fix every
    infrastructure problem in America in under two years. And feed every
    starving child in Africa for five. And still have enough left over for
    cocaine and hookers.

  8. Mohammad Mahir Muntazim says:

    i would watch it for sure 

  9. grumpystiltskin says:

    Real problem is that America’s govt does what America’s corporations want.
    America’s corporations want to show good numbers to wall st this quarter.
    So they only plan half a quarter out, on average.
    There is no way an infrastructure project can help a company pretend to
    make money this quarter. So they don’t want it. Education also can’t help
    them in the next month-and-a-half. So they send lobbyists out to beg for
    things like tax cuts that can immediately add to the bottom line.
    America’s corporations plan ahead just like koch-heads.

    “I’m the best Dam inspector. And I’m here to inspect this Dam!”

    Another awesome bit from John Oliver!

  11. walter pozywio says:

    Movie!! Please!!!!

  12. Isidro Garcia says:

    I have always believed funding in transportation is ALWAYS worth it, I’m so
    glad this guy brought up this topic.

  13. Rose BPOS says:

    Why don’t we use the military to directly build US infrastructure? Isn’t
    that why the merchant marines exist???

  14. ido kaplan says:

    Wow! Awesomely done

  15. PeggyLuWho says:

    Oh my…Edward Norton. ::sigh::

  16. Adrian Alvarado says:

    It is a very interesting time to be a Civil engineer, even if we did manage
    to get the funding to fix a lot of our infrastructure it is gonna be a lot
    of work to see how to solve this problem.

  17. vau0807 says:

    C’mon John Oliver, Kickstart this shit! I want to see YT vids of Edward
    Norton and Steve Buscemi doing skits and soliciting backers.

  18. Pat Harris says:

    I d`rather watch that movie than American Sniper.

  19. MrPerkanator says:

    If USA gets a D+ you should come to Argentina and look at its
    infrastructure. They would get a Z-
