But who is going to pay for the 300+ million dollars for the bridge? Ketchikan? Ketchikan residents? Fact of the matter is that ALOT of the money is coming from people who pay taxes in the lower 48. Therefore making the bridge all of our business. Whether we live in NY, Fla, Cali, TN, or Alaska we are still paying for that bridge if they build it. And so therefore, the people in the Lower 48 should be told the truth about Ketchikan and the surrounding area.
Unfortunately we get politicians who side with their buddies with out knowing the truth. We get people like Stevens who throws fits. He was going to quit if Alaska did not get the money... Booo Hooo.
How about this one..... add
his proposals for the money to a defense bill. What politician
in his or her right mind is not going to pass a bill funding
the troops, military, and well Ted's Alaska propasal. They were
stuck. No choice.
