He's bound and determined we're getting tolls. Oh, and they'll be temporary!

They've actually already put up two gantries on CT-8 that I've seen: one in Waterbury near the Naugatuck line, and one in Seymour near the Ansonia line. (No gear on them yet.)

The Government is like a drug addict, the more they get the more they want. Unlike the drug addict you can't give government enough to OD and die.

They propose 14 so you’re relieved and grateful when they decide to go live with only 10.

Right .. and the MA Pike tolls were going to come down after the revenue from them paid off the bonds floated to fund the Pike...

They had an emergency issue of new bonds when this was about to happen. The emergency was potential triggering of the detolling provision.

How about cutting spending on stupid shit, reforming pensions, eliminating improper payments to ineligible beneficiaries, and consolidating existing debt into larger but lower interest bonds?

Naw can't do that! That would be responsible and wouldn't buy votes or power.
