Bailouts for everyone!

The Allegheny County Port Authority is looking for $117 million from the Federal government to finish a light rail project to the North Shore.  After spending $320 million to bore two tunnels under the Allegheny River, the Port Authority has run out of money to lay the actual track.

The tunnels aren’t going anywhere.  Some might say we should wait for better financial times to finish the project; but why do that when Washington is giving away free money?
