For president-elect, reality is secondary
Watching President-elect Donald Trump’s transition to the White House reminds me of the story of The Emperor’s New Clothes.
Eldred Kagawa Moiliili reports.
I have no clue how a $9 billion to $10 billion rail system compares to Honolulu’s total budget and revenues. I have no clue how a $12 billlion pension deficit compares to the state’s total budget and revenues.
I have no understanding of these relative costs and no understanding of my own personal share of those rail and pension costs, unless you tell me.
Please tell me. Or shall I flee this state before the final bills arrive?
