Gas taxes should be SOLELY applied to those transportation systems that are used by GAS-USING VEHICLES, PERIOD.Gas tax goes to pay for transit related projects as it should. What's wrong with that?
That's WHY there is a "GAS-TAX" to BEGIN WITH. Those taxes should NEVER be used for any other PORK PROJECTS. Any legislator who thinks otherwise should be THROWN OUT OF OFFICE, for GOOD.
The GAS TAX is DIFFERENT from the SALES TAX. GET IT?? The GAS TAX should be solely dedicated to ROADS AND BRIDGES INFRASTRUCTURE, REPAIR, AND MAINTENANCE.
NOW, some STUPID "task force" thinks that we should raise gas taxes in this state by 40 cents a GALLON, to fix our roads.
NONSENSE!!!! They have ABUSED, MISAPPROPRIATED, DIVERTED, and RIPPED OFF our GAS TAXES for DECADES, and NOW, they want MORE TAXES to ABUSE??
NO MORE GAS TAXES FOR BIKE PATHS. NO MORE GAS TAXES FOR LIGHT RAIL. NO MORE GAS TAXES FOR MASS TRANSIT, those who use mass transit should be able and WILLING to at least pay enough for the system to BREAK EVEN.
