Saving our country

September 9, 2012
dsp Williamsport Sun-Gazette

How to waste $23,000,000. Build the unjustifiable Williamsport Regional Airport access road . Then throw away another $13-$15 million for a new terminal, add $650,000 for a new security fence and most recently, $1 million to lure another airline. Local officials support these boondoggles, because its free money, thanks to Uncle Sam's putrid pork barrel. Sixty percent of the handout is your tax money, 40 percent is borrowed from China and other dear friends or merely printed by the Federal Reserve. We need our airport. Do the airlines? Upgrade the facility based on necessity, not a hope or childish dream.
