Adler to seek State/Federal **BAILOUT** for HIS Failures in Water Debacle

"For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers."
Matthew 23:4

Is this a joke?!?
"Reimbursement" and "Procurement."

In other words, taxpayers elsewhere in Texas and the United States are going to be expected to pick up the tab for this 100% local failure.  This is coming from the same Mayor who has prioritized regulating Uber to death, inventing municipal entitlements, and boondoggle soccer stadiums over basic infrastructure.  But now Steve Adler wants the state of Texas and the Feds to pick of the cost of this debacle.

To the extent that they can do so legally, both Greg Abbott and Donald Trump should tell Adler to pound sand.

Some might grouse that this is unfair to local taxpayers.  Nonsense; local Austin voters are the ones who've been electing this joke of a municipal government.  It's perfectly appropriate for them to bear the full cost of getting out from this mess.  [Note: That being said, vote for Prop. K.]

Bottom Line: This one's on us.  This failure's 100% local.  The state and the feds owe us nothing.


On a lighthearted note, this Twitter user said it perfectly:
