Well its apparent that Governor Baker

does not want to "fix" the problems at the MBTA so much as he wants them to go away quietly....and the best way to do that is for ME to Pay More in Return for a Decline in Service. Great Deal Huh? He can get away with this because our legislature completely enables him and does not want to make the hard decisions to fix the MBTA either they want the problem to go away as well, and if the ridership gets screwed well they are used to gaming that problem so it poses no terrors for any of them. So unless the ridership starts pressuring its representatives in a tough way this will be the shape of things to come....and for that to happen the ridership must enter into a defacto alliance however warily with the MBTA itself....divided we will both be screwed well and thoroughly.
