Thank you, Governor Pawlenty!

Thanks to Governor Pawlenty's shortsightedness, the traffic mess that is the Crosstown Commons won't be fixed when it was supposed to be. For some odd reason, contractors balked at paying for the project themselves because MnDOT doesn't have the money to pay for it. I wonder why?

How is this Pawlenty's fault, you may ask? Well, remember how the legislature passed a bipartisan transportation funding plan that raised the gas tax to provide funding for projects just like this? And remember how Pawlenty vetoed it so he could still be best friends forever with David Strom and the Taxpayers League? Me too.

So I don't think it is any exaggeration to say that Pawlenty and his policies are the reason for this delay. Thanks to him, this overcrowded, dangerous stretch of highway will go unfixed for even longer, harming our economy and people's lives.
