The country is $18,000,000,000,000 in debt. I hope I got enough zeros on there for TRILLIONS!
No wonder Normal decided to go with the Doug Farr underpass plan instead of the cheaper overpass – they had no intention of paying for it!
Chris Koos expects the entire rest of the country to fund their lunacy through another Tiger grant. After all, they already got $22,000,000 for the train station.
Does Koos have any kids? If no, that explains why putting more debt on future generations is immaterial – he just wants an underpass!
The bird-cage liner is reporting that Koos is in high demand around the country for his development skills. Spending other people’s money is something to be celebrated. Maybe the US can sell the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone to pay down debt including the Koos share in Normal.
Future generations will prefer dumping places they can’t afford to go. The tax burden just to pay interest on the debt will bury our kids.
Maybe they can vacation in the underpass.
