This story was a struggle. Should it be a journalistic piece or an editorial piece? In the end I decided to put it in the editorial pile. The reason I struggled is because I know many of the parties in this story. I do not want to offend but the lack of responsibility shown by all the parties deserves scrutiny. Georgia taxpayers and voters have been betrayed again.
No one seems to think about the cost anymore except taxpayers and people who have to think about the costs - the middle class and economically disadvantaged communities. Though our political leaders discuss our “capitalistic” free market society and government waste, the reality is it doesn’t really matter to those who say they represent the voters. Both parties seem happy to spend away without regard to fiduciary responsibility or societal costs.
