1 a.m.: When drinks drunk and taxes enacted

Joint Finance committee voted on the budget 14 hours after the
scheduled time, at 1 a.m. Part of the plan was a new light rail system
for a train system in south eastern Wisconsin. Seeing that taxpayers
will pay $25 per ride to cover the difference for a $28 ride I don't know who thinks this is much of a deal either.

Nothing
wrong with trains. I would ride and use a train if practical. I like to
be able to read on my way to work. But $28? How is that suppose to help
the people of Wisconsin during these hard economic times? I can drive
across the state to Madison for $28 each way. This is a huge government
rip-off.

All Republicans voted against; all Democrats for.
