In reply to: Riding to the Rescue of the Klamath (The Glass Slipper, 11-16) 

So there's $536MM of federal funds and another $550MM in "non-federal funds." Why do you hoist the canard that this only costs $536MM? What are the other non-federal funds? Where does this other money come from? Who pays that price tag? I can guess and I know I'll be right.

So for a total of about $1.1 Billion, we get 4,600 jobs. That's only $239,000 per job. Another great lib idea. Sounds like the good deal we got from Solyndra and the other bogus green energy jobs.

It was Thatcher (I think)that said, "the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of someone else's money."

Exactly why it most likely will not make it through Congress."
