Gimme, gimme

A blog reader from Lower Arkansas notes an article in the Benton County Daily Record that illustrates how NW Ark. Republicans want to take care of their needs -- highways in this case, but the strategy applies across the board. As expressed by Rep. Donna Hutchinson: Take money from everyone else in Arkansas by changing the way highway money is divided. Never mind that, though NW Ark. might need more, it doesn't mean other regions need less. But why raise taxes if you can steal someone else's money?

You'll have to copy and paste to read it.
