Why would we need to tax ourselves more at the pump or otherwise???
Don’t even start with me on government honeypots.
There’s a problem with those big ol cash reserves set up for specific issue. They WILL get raided for something else someday. Recall the tobacco settlement which has been re-purposed at least a couple of times since the award. Remember the BCBS Three and a half $Billion of ratepayer/Taxpayer (by reason of contract with state) money that has disappeared.
Peter Lucido says not necessary. While most lawmakers are cowering in fear lest someone learn how they stand, he is as clear as glass on the issue. In this case, its a $20,000,000,000.00 pile of dough that earns nearly a billion a year? Given the planned obsolescence of such a fund in the wake of ‘insurance reform,’ why on earth would we NOT consider its use for paying down current and immediate needs.
$20 billion? holy guacamole.
Oh and someone stand watch over Rick’s ‘stash’ ok?
What's the odds?
I mean, it's not like current House and Senate leadership have Slick Rick's back on protecting the insurance lobbyists MCCA, right?
