McConnell Fails To Lead

Some predicted that Senator McConnell if elected as Majority Leader would not hold the conservative line.  This article from Breitbart outlines McConnells failure.  These lines from the article say it all:

...it's quite clear from the empirical data that nothing has changed, and Reid's office is clearly quite happy about it. It's as if he's still the Senate Majority Leader.McConnell on the other hand is getting beat all over the place. Whether it's by choice or by accident, either way he currently has no defense for his failures as a leader.

We need to vote these rascals and all the lifetime politicians out of office and get fresh ideas into office.

The KY Chamber of Commerce should Ban Smoking

One of the most contentious issues in the recent legislative session of the General Assembly regarded a statewide smoking ban in KY. Thanks to the NKY Legislative Caucus it failed. It’s worthy to note that Adam Koenig, R-Erlanger voted in favor of it along with NKY’s two Democrats (Where local pols stand on Ky. Smoking ban, 2015).

Incontrovertibly the prevalence of smoking in KY is embarrassingly high. A Gallup poll as recent as late 2013 found that it was 30.2 percent (In U.S., Smoking Rate Lowest in Utah, Highest in Kentucky, 2013).  Such metrics have prompted our health departments and the KY Chamber of Commerce to promote smoking bans as a means to reduce the prevalence of smoking in our state (Smoking ban has chance in Kentucky legislature, 2015).  If we assume that smoking bans would be effective in reducing smoking, the arguments for and against can be distilled down to two basic positions. Anti-smoking zealots believe that it is a public health issue and that the need to reduce smoking and smoking related illnesses trumps private property rights. Libertarians argue that private property is the basic tenet of freedom in a capitalist society and that property owners have a right to establish the rules on their property.  Ultimately the market will determine the fate of smoking in KY.

P3's, TIF's and Tolls...a Recipe for Bankruptcy

 Confused about Public Private Partnerships and Tax Incremental Financing? 

Read how a TIF and P3 project in Bowling Green Kentucky is turning out to be a nightmare for the city and taxpayers.  Couple of quotes from the Bowling Green Daily News article:

"Warren County Attorney Amy Milliken said placing a lien on the Hitcents Park Plaza structure  might be complicated because it was created through a partnership between government and private entities. "

"The city is responsible for covering whatever portion of the bond payment isn't covered by specified revenues."

The use of P3's and TIF's is toxic everywhere they are used.  Couple them with Tolls and a financial disaster is sure to occur.  Call your legislator....oppose HB 443.  Oppose them anywhere you see them!
