Reason show notes for Feb. 4, 2009 ...

Buffalo's Common Council is hoping that Metro Rail will be extended as part of the Democrats stimulus package. I'd love to see it.

Of course, that depends on whether the stimulus package ever materializes. It's hung up in the senate and house republicans voted unanimously against it, including my congressman, Chris Lee. He's taking some flak for that ... but not from me. I agree with Chris on this one. Spending money we don't have on things we don't need doesn't seem like a good way to fix the economy.

Then, of course, New York State has its own budget problems, which the Democrats claim to have fixed.

Of course, when Democrats talk about money, I get worried. They can't even seem to figure out how to pay their taxes.
