Representative Scott Garrett was given the opportunity to explain his transportation opt out bill on Fox Business the other day. After laying out the plan, and saying he believed mass transit operators would likely prefer his plan, the head of the MTA basically said "no, no we wouldn't" (that's a paraphrase).
One has to wonder if Garrett will continue to pursue the bill so openly after being told by the head of the MTA that it's a bad idea. That's the difference between an ideologue and someone seeking real solutions to issues.
