Ding Dong The Ditch Is Dead

Which old ditch? The Billions Ditch

Gov. Chris Christie will kill the second Hudson River tunnel project — the biggest active public works undertaking in the country — with an announcement expected to be made today, an official said.

Christie is sticking by the decision he made more than two weeks ago to scuttle what could be a $9 billion-plus project because of concerns that the state would be responsible for $2 billion to $5 billion in cost overruns, an official familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because an announcement had not been made.

With a broke NJ on the hook for the billions in cost over runs, this is the correct decision.

    After receiving criticism from Mayor Bloomberg of NY, Christie told him to get his check book out. Right answer.

    One less ditch available to this President to drive the economy into. What’s not to like?

    So that pop I heard this morning was probably Krugman’s head exploding?

    I read that as “bitch”, thought you were talking about Pelosi quitting when they lose the house.

    Syd, that is the right answer, indeed!

    That tunnel was a bad idea even in good times. Christie knows a shakedown when he sees it and did the right thing.
