Fie on $50M Unfair Fare Fee

Willard Mitt loves forceful statements – at least when he is addressing an audience. However, take away the audience and Romney looks less forceful than fraudful.

Recently, for example, the Fraud Governor did the Khrushchev-thing in front of an editorial board, saying “We should manage state government as effectively and efficiently as we can to be fiscally responsible, and not to hit our citizens with a tax increase to solve our problems.” (source: Quincy Patriot Ledger, 10/23/2003)

But just days later Romney’s MBTA was “pleased” to accept the T’s Advisory Board’s recommendation that a $50 million fare increase be adopted. (source: State House News, 10/27/2003)

To fill a $20 million shortfall.

Huh? The MBTA needs $20 million to close a budget gap, so Team Reform reaches out and grabs $50 million?

Close enough for fraud government work.

Tank you berry mush: A surprising number of sites have seen fit to post links to RiaF, several of whom send quite a few hits our way.

A cup of kindness and a tip of the candy corn to some of the more active, including Paula’s House of Toast, Dimmy Karras, and the fabulous Mass Insider.

And thanks to all who have dropped a note or a tip to the Rat Line.

'Nuff sentimentality. Back to the cheese.
