Yeah, it's like what just happened in Chicago. For months now the lawmakers have been trying to approve a plan to help the city's mass transit system. Finally a plan that both parties agree on is drawn up and then the governor adds an extra portion that will give senior citizens free rides, now the mass transit system is in debt, but the governor wants a portion of the city to ride for free and he picked senior citizens because no one wants to deny grandma and grandpa a free ride. Plus when he's up for reelection grandma and grandpa, who always vote, will vote for the person that gave them free rides on the el. Playing politics with people's lives, if it wasn't approved, 2,400 people would have been laid off and a boat load of people would lose their way to get to work.
