A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel editorial calls for some "bold, new initiatives" to improve Milwaukee's transit system. No surprise there. But how to pay for the improvements?
No problem. "No robbing of Peter to pay Paul need occur, particularly if new funding sources can be tapped..."
If I am not mistaken, funding for government comes from taxes. And transit users do not pay enough to cover the costs of the transit system. So the difference is payed for by taxpayers who do not use the transit system. How is that not robbing Peter (non transit users) to pay Paul (transit users)?
