Did anyone else notice the story yesterday with the Triple A spokeswoman? "They" are talking about a national bank which would allow "private" investors fund public works, namely roads and bridges, and that would allow the market place to decide where/when/what public works should be done.
That is probably the scariest story yet.
We already have a huge government which pays workers almost twice what any private/corporate sector worker gets paid. Now, we'll be having a national bank with "private investors". Doesn't anyone understand that we already have a scandal concerning Obama campaign contributions? Now, a national bank in the works which will let the market place determine where roads and bridges will be built and fixed. That means rural America will be back to traveling gravel roads because everyone knows commerce centers will get their roads and bridges while farmers and "hicks", since we're used to gravel and dust, will get more of the same.
But that isn't the worst of it. The scariest part is having a national bank owned by the government, funded by private investors. Shudder. We already have people sleeping in welfare hammocks feeling entitled to money that I worked hard to earn, now the government wants private investors to fund public works that we already pay taxes for AND they want to raise taxes on gasoline by at least 25 cents per gallon. So which is it? Private investors or taxes? Will this be another, "Oh you have to pass it in order to find out what's in it" kind of bill?
No thank you. I've had enough of that to last two lifetimes... oh, wait, it's now a debt even our great grandchildren won't be able to pay. When is enough enough, America?
