Bush plans a transit raid

When the money to build highways is running out, what is a president to do?

Steal it from transit, of course.

The president's 2009 proposed transportation budget would move $3.2 billion in transit funding over to highways to shore up that rapidly diminishing account.

Transit would be hit hard; highways would limp along for another year.

And not to raise an uncomfortable question, but what happens in 2010?
