"Go ahead," says Steve. "Make my day."
John McCain didn't fare too well in these parts last November, getting only 28% of the vote in King County. By contrast, Sound Transit did fare well, getting 60% of the vote in same. Now it looks like Mr. Unpopular wants to take down Mr. Popular (is a light rail system male or female?). McCain's proposing amendments to the Dept. of Transportation's spending bill to kill federal funding for a number of transit programs, including Sound Transit 2. Similarly, Dr. Crazy (a.k.a. Tom Coburn of Oklahoma) is looking to pass an amendment that will prevent any money for a number of things (including bike and pedestrian infrastructure) until there's more money for highways. If you're gonna do that, fellas, it'll be over Steve's dead body. (via Seattle Transit Blog)
