Default Re: mass transit renderings

This is the train that is going to take taxpayer money deeper into hell.

Next thing they are going to do is come and take away land from the unfortunate landowners that may be near the route through the use of eminent domain.

Also no one is talking about how much the actual vehicles (train) is going to cost, much less the maintenance and operation of the system. We already have to use property taxes to pay for subsidizing The Bus. People are screaming about high property taxes and now the city has made a one time adjustment to give homeowners a break but transfer the burden to commercial property owners. I guess no one thinks that just like the GE tax increase, those kind of business transfers get passed on to the end user (consumers, you and me) through higher prices for everything we buy.

When is the madness of more taxes, more cost, more government and mess transit is going to end?
