Have you seen the signs that tout the fact that certain road projects are being funded by the stimulus bill passed earlier this year? I have. They apparently cost millions of dollars to make, but Democrats don’t want that funding cut, blaming the proposal instead on sour grapes that the stimulus is “working.”
Some of the projects are nice, I’ll have to admit. And one of them has resulted in a big hole in a road that has blocked use of that road for many rural commuters and doesn’t look like anybody’s working on it.
The signs actually put me in mind of ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s name being plastered all over toll plazas.
Maybe the stimulus signs should say something like, “This project is expected to put your children and children’s children into heavy debt.”
