This reminds me of when local governments need more money, the first hot button issue is either the children will suffer, they need to cut police or cut firefighters.  Meanwhile there's usually a nice fund paying for consultants, bike coordinators....all kinds of things :)

If you are in government and you want something, then inflict pain.

Sounds  like Obama's  handling  of  the  FAA.. 

FAA  had its  budget doubled  over  2 years and  yet  is  purposefully making  flights  get  delayed  and  or  cancelled.

Passengers  are  specifically taxed on  their  tickets  ~  yet  will they  see  a  reduction  in  any  taxes ?

Why ?  because  the  greedy  pigs  in  gov  want  more taxation.
