Wichitopekington: State audit: Wichita-area officials overstated benefits from subsidized airfare program

Disappointing, since I had answered on the Eagle Voter’s Guide that there were few programs that gave as much “bang-for-the-buck” than the affordable airfare program. The upshot is that we have to be careful what and who we believe when evaluating these sorts of programs. The current regime seems to support any sort of subsidy, since they all seem to get the same positive evaluation, and there never seems to be any sort of stomach for saying no to these sorts of corporate welfare programs.
