So as for stepping up to the plate and help with this GOV slush fund that gets borrowed from for other programs...but never gets reimbursed cause the GOV borrows from hand to hand, then says there's no $$$ left in the budget from taxes that is suppose to go into road bridges...etc,
we have General Excise Tax GET, everything you pay for, there's a skim for this new rail that hawaii had 3 tries from the federal gov to get fully paid for. now the state with the absolute worst roads in the country, is trying to patch holes while building this rail,,,a month ago, the GET got raided for education...you ever think your state is messed up and corrupt, come to hawaii and see mafia/broken/cronyism...come to the aloha state...
