Pawlenty's transportation funding plan

What a surprise! Pawlenty's borrow-and-spend budgeting has led to a cash shortage at MnDOT. Apparently, if you want roads, you have to pay for them somehow. If you borrow for them, you eventually have to pay them back, and in the meantime, you are screwed.

Pawlenty's budgeting is like promising the kids a big screen TV for Christmas, and then having no money for groceries after buying it. Minnesota needs more money for transportation; it can't borrow its way out of the problem.
