Think they car-pooled?

Press release:
Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Secretary Frank Busalacchi joined other transportation partners at Goerke’s Corners in Waukesha County today to recognize the 50th anniversary of the nation’s Interstate system and highlight the enormous contributions Wisconsin’s 743-miles of Interstate make to our economy, public safety and mobility. Wisconsin first began Interstate construction near Goerke’s Corners in 1956. The seven-mile segment of I-94 was completed two years later.
Want to bet whether everybody (except those who rate a driver) drove their own cars?

Why didn’t they just add a lane or two to celebrate? It would have been a great shot of Busalacchi knocking down a couple of businesses so that with the additional lanes we can all save a few mintues on our drive in. I want to fromally begin the conversaton about “identifiable funding source”. Recall if you will, the exhuberation many in the community displayed when Barrett vetoed the connector because there was no funding source. Just how do we plan on paying for all this freeway work? Perhaps while they were all out there today, the Secretary should have announced a tax increase? But hey, why ruin a fantastic celebration with all that nasty tax talk.

Are you trying to antagonize Jim "Don't Drink the Water" Rowan?

I'm simply attempting to find an answer to the question: Where is the money going to come from? It certainly isn't going to come from the transportation fund their already running a deficit for this budget cycle. I cannot for the life of me understand why we are going to rebuild the entire N/S corridor when there are only a couple of areas that need to be addressed (mitchell interchange / airport spur). Then the E/W to match. It blows my mind that the conservatives aren't up in arms over spending all of this money! BTW - I'm a big fan of Jim RowEn that guy is amazing! To add to your concern...I hope someone brings the issue of water (or lack thereof) up tonight at the Lang proposal meeting in Delafield. Another mind numbing proposal in the most conservative county in Wisconsin. Silly me, I thought conservative and conservation were two very similar words and concepts.

Who cares where the money is coming from to pay for all this government spending, as long as the campaign contributions keep coming in, right?
