Connect Transit would make a great comedy sketch if it wasn’t so tragic for future generations.
There would not be huge buses on the streets of Bloomington-Normal without Federal and State grants, and money from local government. It’s your tax dollars and money borrowed from other countries or printed by the Federal Reserve.
Your descendants will be taxed to death to pay for the massive debt and unfunded liabilities created by all levels of government.
Just one small part of the problem:
In October 2015 Connect Transit had Revenue of $139,309.25
In October 2015 Connect Transit had Expenses of $823,856.03
For ONE month, you subsidized local bus service for $687,546.78
Just since July 2015, you subsidized local bus service for $2,858,711.38
Maybe McLean County really does need more mental health care!
Here’s the people in need of immediate in-patient care: http://www.connect-transit.com/about/trustees/default.asp
Maybe a better idea is re-education camps concentrating on individual rights and responsibilities.
Or, maybe it’s time to admit the great American experiment is over. Elected officials ignore the citizens, redistribute your wealth to buy votes, and accumulate debt that can never be repaid.
Carry on, nothing to see here.
