KY Road plan: more "spend, ready, aim!"

The Kentucky Club for Growth hits a trifecta in catching state government, Lexington, and the Herald Leader goofing on taxpayers again:

"Has either the state or the city actually analyzed the costs involved? No."

"So here's a $200,000 budget item that will balloon into more spending as these additional costs are encountered, all for a project the residents of the road frankly do not want."

"Not to mention $800,000 in state transportation funds that could also serve a better purpose."

You can read the rest here.

Our politicians are going to come back after us for a Road Fund "deficit" of $80 million in the current fiscal year. They should have to answer for this waste way before that happens.
