The Democrats always have a better idea; I am particularly fond of New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin’s.
A Texas auto salvage company approached Mayor Nagin and proposed to PAY the city $100 a piece to dispose of the 50,000 destroyed cars and promised to do so within 15 WEEKS.
Mayor Nagin rejected to offer and proposed instead to dispose of the cars over six MONTHS at a COST of $23 million dollars to the taxpayer.
Nagin stated that he was unsure if the Texas businessman’s proposal was legal. This helps me understand the Democrat’s mind; when problems arise, solutions taking longer and costing more must be more legal than the quicker, cheaper solution; so, in the interest of public ethics always go with the costlier proposal.
