Bramble's Spin Gamble
Senator Curtis Bramble claims the sole purpose of his RDA bill was to protect education funding. (Tribune) This "for the children" defense is misleading. Senator Bramble's comments create the false impression that the RDA money earmarked for projects like the RSL stadium will now be used in education. The reality is the public education budget seems to have reached its maximum potential. The RDA money would not be directed into education, it would only be diverted to other projects. Disclosure: I am an RSL season ticket holder.
