They always say the money will come from somewhere else but all paths lead back to the taxpayers wallet. They sold the lottery here years ago when they said profits would go to the schools. What they didnt say was that the money already going to the schools would then be funnelled off somewhere else. Whenever they promise that money from new taxes there is always a bait and switch going on. Its just an excuse for them to redirect existing money while appearing to augment said project often leaving the project with less funding than it originally had. I really wish the politicians would be held accountable but the reality is that all they have to do is appear to be helping those in need and they will continually get reelected. Its always the other parties fault that their promises fell flat. The amazing thing is that so much of the voting public is in denial or just flat out doesnt see it.
