The Massachusetts state government decided to spend $2.6 million to build a bridge to connect two halves of a horse reservation. It actually ended up spending $4.6 million. It is used by about 50 horses and the people who ride them.
That means it took the entire income of 70.4 median households to pay for the bridge. At 2.51 people per household, that’s 176 people’s entire earnings.
Projects like this are one reason why Massachusetts is looking at a $2.7 billion budget deficit next year.
