How's That Workin' For Ya

The Bakersfield Californian has been up in arms as Cal Trans stiffs the taxpayers again. Guess what? So has the LA Times, claiming LA county didn't get their fair share.

Here we go. Just as anyone with a little knowledge about politics ought to know. But no, the voters had the proverbial carrot dangled in their faces and passed all those absurd bond measures that were going to fix our roads.

We in Kern county in particular are being ignored by the head of our Cal Trans district offices because we didn't place the onus of an additional half-cent sales taxes upon ourselves. Stupid taxpayers. No roads for you. The highway nazis have spoken.
Today's editorials in TBC even went so far as to berate us for our short vision of not paying more to get our share.

Does this sound like extortion to anyone else?
