Interestingly, read an interesting article on how the Golden Gate Bridge was NOT funded by govt. It was privately funded by sale of bonds by counties involved due to the need for such a bridge due need for commerce. Also, interesting the bonds were paid off by tolls by the users of the bridge. And it was paid off on time; then generated a surplus, so the tolls could be removed. Obama referred to this bridge being provided by govt ... not quite the case. There was mention of another bridge in the same general area that WAS built by govt funding, but it wasn't the Golden Gate.
