Sale Does NOT Mean Lease

The FIN received an e-mail from the utterly confused leader of the State Democratic Party yesterday. The e-mail tries to rally support against the toll road lease, Major Moves, and any hope for the future of this State.

We quote from the e-mail:

"The Indiana General Assembly has until midnight Tuesday to approve or deny Gov. Mitch Daniels' plan to sell off the Indiana Toll Road to a group of private, foreign investors."

"By standing together on this issue, we can help make sure that Indiana's infrastructure remains Indiana-owned for our children and their children. Thank you for all you've done to help our efforts!"

In this e-mail, Dan Parker states twice that the governor is trying to sell off Indiana assets. Really!!! It is a lease. We are leasing it out for them to run for 75 years. That means if they don't do things correctly according to the lease, we can take the road back and keep the money we got up front. This does not constitute in anyway a sale. If we sold it, we would lose any and all control.

Just another great example from a party that has to use false information and scare tactics to get noticed. I think that anyone against this plan should not be able to benefit from everything that it is going to do for us for the next 50 years.

Maybe the legislature should try and pass something requiring an employee of a party to have an education level above 4th grade.

I think a 4th grader would know the difference between lease and sale.

Maybe we could give Parker the ISTEP for 4th graders to see how he does. We will let him choose between the spring or fall semesters to take it.

well it looks like this email really had a big effect since they passed major moves last night. guess they aren't giving out A's for effort, huh?

You know, it refers to the deal as a "sale" in the "lease" document. Read twice before you speak once.
