Typical public servant attitude. Why would you spend money based on future revenue just for the sake of "just spending money"? WTF is wrong with you? "Spend money" just to undermine the future government? Would you max out the credit credit card of your children leave them to pay for your "Spending"?
pathetic. This road tolling is a terrible idea and it would fail miserably.
People spend money based on assumptions around future revenue all the time, it's not a public servant attitude - it's called a mortgage. The question is whether such spending is needed and fits in the ability to pay. If it is, it should happen.
As to undermining future governments, I don't see any complaints about tax cuts that basically closes out revenue streams for the future even when there is a significant national debt to be paid off. So much for "thinking about the children".
