Ready for a Mad Max world of potholes and chaos?

Corbett's Pa. budget ignores roads and bridges - "Is transportation funding too complex? Too costly? Is our transportation crisis lessening? No. We need at least $2 billion in new funding each year, according to the Transportation Funding Advisory Commission, which Gov. Corbett created last year. Did you notice that Gov.
