Mary Peters Is After Me Lucky Charms

As we've mentioned before, she wants to take transit money and transfer it to the highway fund. Last time I checked, the highway fund was really huge, and the transit fund was rather small. And also last time I checked, why do we have such a huge surplus? Is that from not building projects like Dulles or making places like Minneapolis fight each other to the death because their CEI is a few cents high? Perhaps it has been an evil plot to take the money all along. You know it wouldn't surprise me with this group.

Ok, you win.

Of all the various posting about this debacle of a proposal, this one is the best. By far.

Well done. Well done indeed.

Haha thanks Alex.

It seems to me that the easiest way to fix the "shortfall" isn't to take money away from mass transit but to stop freeway expansion projects such as the $1.9 billion I94 expansion in Wisconsin.

I completely agree Dave. It's a ridiculous waste to keep expanding freeways while thinking about how to reduce carbon.
