Today, in anticipation of a vote to add $17.4 million in new funding to the Streetcar plan, the sycophantic six on Council, Seelback, Simpson, Quinlivan, Thomas, Young, and Qualls, voted to amend Council Rules to remove the right of "separation."
Thus, in the coming two weeks when Council approves the budget, there will be buried in there yet an additional $17.4 million in funding for the Streetcar. And Council members will deny what is in there, or explain it away by saying they "had to vote for the entire budget."
They are trying to lessen the blow to themselves, in an election year, of voting for more Streetcar funding. We are betting Cincinnati voters are smarter than that.
