Just go see who serves on the State of California transportaion commission. Labor union representatives have replaced businessmen and women thanks to Gray Davis and the Democrats who run the Legislature. Guess who they are interested in? Not the taxpayers. The investment in California's highways are going to the big urban labor union interestest and not to the rural taxpayers.This is just another example of the UNIONS trying to run this state into poverty. Look at the Calif. Dept. of Corrections,CHP, CalFire and Teachers unions. Some of these have 90% retirements, what do we was as hard working tax payers get?
They will try to say they earn it because they put their lives on the line every day. Well they are paid for it at a much higher wage every day then they carry it into retirement.
Maybe its time for the people of this state to stand up and push our own laws thru to get what benefits us as taxpayers, last time I looked there was more of us than the people representing us!
Maybe we should start the "Common Sense" party to represent us!
Case in point? The $177 million dolar funding for the Willits by-pass was voted down in favor of spending the money on the I405 freeway in Orange County.
