Let's Have a Contest To see WHO Gets to be Governor Privatize- Indiana's Daniels Or Texas's Perry

16 June 2007 at 11:19:48 AM

Sure looks like both these greedy clowns are separated at birth.

In his two and a half years in office, Mr. Daniels, who previously served in the Bush White House as budget director, has already placed in the hands of private companies plenty of public business: some welfare-applicant screening, running a prison and, most notably, operating the 157-mile Indiana Toll Road, which slices across the northern edge of the state.

And, backed by fellow Republicans who until last fall controlled both houses of the legislature, he has tried not to let it end there. Mr. Daniels has also called for new privately operated roads and for the leasing of the state’s lottery. All this, he says, is in the interest of efficient delivery of state services.

“We’re just trying to solve our problems,” he said on a recent afternoon, seated at his desk, which could have been a tiny boat floating in the gaping sea of his enormous Statehouse office. “We don’t want to be anybody’s poster child for anything.”

Yet that is precisely how his critics now view him — as Governor Privatize.

“We knew this would be part of his grand scheme,” said David Warrick, a union leader who represents 25,000 public workers in Indiana and Kentucky. “He’s bent on privatizing everything he can get his hands on.”

And we already know how our Governor 39 "I Love Dubai" Percent Is.
