FYI, up until about 1998 or so, it cost $400/yr to register a car in Washington. We cut the cost way down...and at the same time raised the gasoline tax in order to pay for it IIRC.
And did you not see that I said that red states are NOT poor because they are red? Would I say that, if I were only "pushing a (partisan) meme"? I provided you an answer why this is, why it is NOT the conservatives' fault that red states are worse off than blue states. Have you got a better answer?
Again, if I am only pushing a partisan meme, WHY would I say that red states are NOT generally poor because of conservative governance? WHY would I say that, if I'm just some partisan progressive hack?
