From $4.5 to $33.4 to $38 to $56 million

$56 million is the latest figure for what Johnson Controls Inc. got from Duluth for the building of the Red Plan. And the U.S. suffered virtually no inflation in the Red Plan years!

State Auditor’s assistant Mark Kerr, who I hope will be in Duluth Tuesday, describes one $8.7 million payment to JCI that Art Johnston and I have been kicking about as legal. But as I’ve enjoyed pointing out many times throughout the Red Plan’s juggernaut its legal to hang an innocent man for murder in the U.S. just so long as he’s found guilty.
