Re: Federal Agency Pushes States to Toll Existing Roads

We are paying for it. Taxes on gas, on income, on license fees, etc. These are all collected to maintain the road. It's that they've already taken our money and now will withhold that money (thus putting the infrastructure at risk) less we comply with the rules they have added. That's not proper. And they're going to say there is some problem and take our money, part of which should be used for maintenance, and try to bribe States into agreeing with them. They're already paid, they need to do this job. Toll roads can be for private roads.

You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
