Bwana Explains It All. Or Questions It All. Or Something.

I missed this a couple of days ago...
I realize it is logical this study was done. Circumstantial evidence suggests otherwise. I think if either the pro-tax, the no-tax, or the gotta survive-tax groups had such a report, they would be trumpeting it from one end of the state to the other. You see such a report has to bolster one side or the other. If VDOT is well run, and there is no waste, then the argument for higher taxes becomes more reasonable. If VDOT is not well run, and there is rampant waste, then the argument for no taxes becomes more palatable. It cuts favorably one way or the other, and the fact that no one is talking about such a report or analysis argues persuasively that said analysis does not exist.[link]
Go read the whole thing, Bwana has an excellent analysis of the transportation crisis.
