Walker's delusions

Let's get this straight. County Executive Scott Walker thinks that the Connector’s $300 million estimated price tag is too high, but he thinks that a $6 billion or $8 billion or $10 billion plan -- whatever it is now -- to build bigger freeways is "economic development."

Let's get this straight. County Executive Scott Walker doesn't want to raise taxes, but his administration so far has been supportive a $21 billion regional transportation plan that has a $65 million annual shortfall in funding.

Let's get this straight. County Executive Scott Walker swears he won't raise property taxes, but the freeway widening plan he likes so much is almost sure to do so through increased road maintenance costs, increased sewage treatment costs, and increased freeway patrol costs, to name just a few tax uppers.

Let's assume that whatever County Executive Scott Walker is smoking is legal.

Can I have some?
