Helping out Brickstreet

Joe Manchin is our privatizing governor, eager to cut state payrolls by passing those jobs off to private industry or by using contractors to replace state employees. Unfortunately, news today shows the state giving up a lot for that privilege.

So far, Brickstreet has saved $76M by not paying the state any taxes, plus the state loaned Brickstreet $200M in startup money. “Starting in July, BrickStreet will start competing for business from private insurers, though it will retain its monopoly for insuring state employees.” How nice for them.
