Northampton Community College expects to build Monroe campus in 2011 | PoconoRecord.comLocal issue, here. I guess I should read the Pocono Record more...double duh! I voted against taxpayer bailout of the bond and thought that, with 62 percent of the people against it, it wouldn't be done.
Was the purpose of putting the issued to referendum just to insult the majority of people who pay the taxes around here? I'm even more shocked that the bond relies on gambling revenues, especially in this collapsed economy.
What kind of bond rating will it get? Triple DDD? That might be okay if it were bra size but, as financing goes, it's completely irresponsible, reckless, and deceptive. It's very easy for these people, who won't condescend to live in shabby Monroe County, to put the tax hooks into us.
