Wow. You sound like an angry person. I think that you would benefit from talk therapy and perhaps medication to deal with your issues, which have obviously been repressed for far too long.
And it has nothing to do with the tax code. It has everything to do with the federal government's control and regulation of the interstate highway system under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution.
But that would be far beyond the intellectual capacity of your tiny brain. Go shop at Wal-Mart and leave the rest to us. We'll make sure you can buy your polyester panties at the best price.
Have a nice day. Or not. I don't care either way.
I see you're a medical expert too. Haven't had much to do since retiring from years of driving a taxicab, eh?

Typical mentality here on Beacon Hill. Blame everything on N.H.,and rile up the nitwit Mass.residents with the asinine belief that the state is trying to help you.
I bet you clowns would vote for him and his thugs all over again.
The best one that the government constantly pulls off is the old end run game. the come out and say they are going to raise the tolls to 8 dollars. Get everybody fired up...then they slide in a gas tax while gas is cheap...and the stupid public won't care because they won't raise the tolls at the same time. Then when the crooks at the turnpike come back and want the 8 bucks again...Deval will give them 5 dollars and say "look here I battled and saved you 3 dollars". But you have been taken to the cleaners.
It is called the K.White school of politics!

If toll booths are outlawed, only outlaws will have toll booths.
Then we could outlaw the entire state of New Jersey...might be onto something here!
