how about some real account of how concord waste tax dollars?

Consider the state charges 18..5 cents a gallon state gas tax, the feds give them money from the 9.5 cents the fed charge on every gallon we purchase. then the state receives federal highway funds, collects millions in tolls to support only 60 miles of NH toll roads??

Taxes on tires, auto inspections, licensed fees for cars boats, trucks snow mobiles etc part of which is suppose to go to road bridge maintenance . But does it actually go there?

the big question is how much money does the state take in and how much is actually spent on road bridge work and what amount is wasted diverted to other none road projects?

Why does a toll road system of 60 miles need 6 overpaid administrators plus staff?

why are we still paying tolls? the promise to tax payers was when the toll roads were paid off the tolls would come down. we paid off that system years ago but the greedy tax and spend liberals in concord just find other ways to waste the money.

We don't need new taxes what is needed is honest accounting of what the state does with the money they just take from us.

Some one needs to look at the big tax picture here. citizens are being over taxed over regulated by federal state county and city governments. the more money government takes out of the economy the longer it will take for our economy to recover.

We have not yet recovered. try attending a job fair , or good jobs advertised in NH take note of the numbers of people with degrees and advance education looking for work, the unemployment rate is much higher than the administration tells us it is.
