Sadly, one man's resources are another man's expenses. Governor Ehrlich may recall that there were many who did not feel the resources he (and, later, Gov. Martin O'Malley) committed to the Inter-County Connector were well spent. At this point, the investment barely meets toll projections, which were reduced after failing to meet optimistic initial goals. Maryland taxpayers get to assume this type of risk, but the entrepreneurs who built the road have all been paid. Darn that Barack Obama.
