    If the State increased gas/fuel taxes to repair our current under maintained roads and bridges I would support it but to pass taxes to build new roads and bridges to add additional miles of road to the unfunded maintenance burden we are not addressing now would be ludicrous.

    Would you add an addition to your house if your roof leaked, termites were swarming around the foundation and paint was pealing off the walls???

    Taxation is not anywhere near its limits, not as long as one penny and any private property remains in private hands. What remains in private hands is just an untapped resource and the result of loopholes in the tax code. — Edwards
