State government has been raping earmarked funds forever. For example, lets look at the State Of Texas and the diversion of highway funds (primarily funded through the gas tax in Texas). This year over 3 billion will be collected from the gas tax. Over 1.5 BILLION will be diverted into:
- DPS 1,200,000,000
- Health and Human Services 20,00,000
- Commission on The Arts 1,340,000
- Historical Commission 1,000,000
- TEA 100,000,000
- The Fucking Lufkin Tourist Information Center 150,000
1.5 Billion that could have been used for roads and keep shit like SH 121 from becoming a toll road.
