NH Executive Council Votes To Explore Boondoggle

by Steve MacDonald

Commuter Rail - The lefts ideological trophy wifeThe Executive Council, by a vote of 4-1, has approved a 3.7 million dollar feasibility study–all three Democrats and sometime Republican Ray Burton voted to approve the expense.

“Expanded rail service to Nashua and beyond has the potential to boost New Hampshire’s economy and create jobs. The only way we can understand the full impact of the project and ensure that taxpayer dollars are protected is to gather all of the facts,” said Gov. Maggie Hassan, a Democrat, in a statement. “Using federal funds to study the rail project is a commonsense step forward that will allow the people of New Hampshire and their elected leaders to fully evaluate the options and make an informed decision.”

What about the $400,000.00 worth of taxpayer dollars you didn’t protect to be expended on a project (that is wasting other people’s  millions better spent elsewhere) that everyone knows is nothing more than the Democrat party pushing an ideological rock across the barren tundra of the left wing landscape?  Democrats (and far too many Republicans) just want the dream of rail to be a reality, even if the reality is that in the long run it will cost jobs and money from somewhere else to prop up their ridiculous fantasy, and then some, for something that will never be more than another infrastructure boondoggle kept on indefinite life-support for decades with what will amount to millions of dollars that will never be available for anything else.

    Hmmm, here we have a clear case of spend, now let’s keep our eyes pierced (nipples optional) to find the taxes hidden amongst the legislative foliage. For you kids trying to follow along at home, I’d start on the yellow brick road (gold that is) for the millionaire study and see where it leads to the land of Oz with all its wizards at the helm. No peaking.

        I didth, and I’m not sure it’s o.k., but it is what the ‘utes are doin’ these days. When painting pictures with words, sometimes it gets tricky what’s part of an art project, and what gratuitously tweaks one’s sensibilities.

    Steve:
    Oh well, now we have “invested” $3.7 million, so we should just go ahead and spend a half a billion more – we don’t want to lose that first investment.
    And the committee worked so hard!
    How could we NOT do this?
