Roads & Bridges Shut Out, Maybe February 5, 2008Posted by awatcher in Uncategorized.
The Gazette isn’t very happy that Bill Ritter isn’t buying us new roads and bridges:
Switching from practical to principled arguments, of the big three issues competing for Ritter’s support, education and health care are not really government’s business; transportation is. Proponents for more government involvement in education and health care like to point out that the free market doesn’t work in those areas. Actually, it does, it just doesn’t work in ways those folks like. The market allocates limited resources to the places consumers deem them most needed.
Of course, Bill Ritter wants it both ways. He wants the legislature to take the heat on the $100 “fee” while he goes to the voters on another subject.
