Footbridge To Nowhere

Posted by Dan Draney on October 24, 2005

Your tax dollars at work: PTG tells us about a bad plan that won’t die in A Footbridge Too Far. How have Omaha and Council Bluffs gotten along all these years without a footbridge across the Missouri River? How much would people actually pay for such a structure, if the users had to pay? Our guess is hundreds of people per year might pay as much as $1 apiece to cross this bridge: not bad for a $45 million dollar project, by Federal Pork Standards.

Is there any hope that our government will someday get control of its spending? It’s been clear for years that Democrats will not do it, and it’s looking more and more like Republicans won’t do so either.
