    Complete Waste of Federal Confiscated Tax Dollars

    Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood met with Gov. Rick Snyder and the state Senate Republican leader Tuesday on the long-stalled regional transit authority.

    LaHood praised the meeting with Sen. Majority Leader Randy Richardville and said progress was being made. He said he planned to meet with the state House Speaker Jase Bolger early next month.

    "I believe within the next month or so we will be able to make some announcements and we're making a lot of progress and I things are moving in the right direction," LaHood said.

    In February 2010, the Transportation Department awarded $25 million for Detroit light rail as part of a 9.3-mile, $500 million project that was to travel up Woodward to Eight Mile.

    Rest here

    Speaker Bolger, here's a chance to redeem yourself with stopping this wasteful progressive agenda by a No Go in the House on Gov JenniRick Snydholms' utopian Regional Transit Authority.

    Though, good for graft.

    Look, I don't know how many times I have to say this: DETROIT HAD A STREETCAR SYSTEM UNTIL THE MID-1950'S.

    It was ran by the government, and they literally ran into into the pavement.

    If they continue to promote this money pit, republicans deserve to lose control in Lansing.

    and then you can ask yourself, "Why couldn't this be Detroit?"  Hmmmm, why?  It may become evident.


    Oh, by the way, it built a street car system not that long ago which was credited with a general revival of areas that had fallen into neglect.

    This transit plan is like a hoarder needing to clean house but instead buys gorgeous, top of the line furniture.

    This is the way of Detroit for many decades. Detroit must stop it's obsessive/compulsive socialism.

    In response to job YEARS calculations, J. Gillman was quoted, "These things are usually overrated." That applies to this latest transit scheme as well.
