4. We've been doing this for many years...

it started when politicians discovered they could take credit for big new projects, but no one cared about maintenance.

Well, people did actually care about maintenance, but there was no way to get ribbon-cutting ceremonies, big news stories, or anything else to catch the public attention, and when something broke there was always a speech about fixing it and blaming someone else.

And there was never nearly as much to steal in maintenance contrracts as in new construction.
