"The special interests are just chalking-up years of pay-off losses? Pardon me if I am NOT totally convinced."
Wilson County News
Texans are being told that "suddenly" the Trans-Texas Corridor (TTC), the proposed super-highway from Mexico through the U.S. and up to Canada, plans are over. Poof! Vanished!
Is this reality-based or just another ruse to push through the concept via another back-door?
Since George Bush was Texas governor special interests and legislators have been charting the TTC and toll roads throughout the state. Wealthy individuals and their companies have been providing selected elected officials with large campaign contributions so that pro-TTC and toll legislation was developed and approved through the Texas Legislature.
So after 10 years all those plans are being dropped and the special interests are just chalking-up years of pay-off losses?
Pardon me if I am NOT totally convinced.
It would NOT be the first time that politicians play politics with taxpayer lives and dollars.
So, we can accept unequivocally what we are being told, or we may continue to be cautiously alert and watchful as transportation committees and plans unfold during the 2009 Texas Legislative Session.
After all, our governor and legislators do not have good transportation track records re: doing what is in the best interests of Texas families.
