Fresh off a vote yesterday to increase tolls on Illinois roads by as much as 87.5 percent, state politicians and bureaucrats are proposing yet another “investment” to be borne by recession-weary taxpayers: a series of recharging stations across the state for electric cars. Sounds like another jobs program for the unions.

This proposal comes days after Costco announced that it will remove special charging parking spaces for electric cars because few people use them. Why don’t any of these myriad government proposals ever talk about reductions in spending and reform of Illinois government as usual? We the people certainly need some R&R from this bunch.
