How about we not piss away a billion dollars in corporate welfare and payola to the NFL and the Wilf family trust?

Highway Trust Fund/HTF revenue $39B, HTF expenditures $53B.

25% of HTF revenue goes to: non-highway projects.

Non-highway projects contribute NOTHING to the HTF.

Non-highway projects:

Bike related paths and roadway.
Lite Rail Transit, Hiawatha and Green Line.
Heavy Rail Transit, North Star.
Nature trails, to many to name.
etc

BTW every year the Met Council goes begging to the Legislature for $30,000,000 in order to pay for the Hiawatha LRT line. Of course in 2015 the Met Council will go begging for $60,000,000 to operate the Hiawatha and the Green Line. These annual stipends arn't included in the HTF revenue wasted on LRT. HRT also needs annual welfare to keep it "running", you know when the Twins are losing and nobody is riding the North Star to the games.

Not to mention the Minnesota Motor Vehicle Sales Tax is dedicated to being wasted on LRT, HRT, buses etc, Met Council junk. The MVST should all go to road building and repair.

Don't forget the new senate building, totally unnecessary, ugly and 10 times more expensive than it needs to be. Democrats are out of control!
