To The Daily Sun,
"60 Minutes" did a program on the infrastructure on the bridges and roads. It said so many bridges were in disrepair and needed to be fixed. Yes they do.
But they want to raise the gas tax.
I am sick of hearing that more money is needed to fix our infrastructure.
I live in the town of Meredith. The federal government was going to spend $4 million and the state $1 million for rotaries that we do not need. After a town meeting, with many town citizens attending, the selectmen voted the project down.
More towns and cities need to vote down projects that are not needed.
Stimulus money — bridges to nowhere; why didn't we spend the billions of dollars on infrastructure then? Federal gas tax money has been used to create hiking trails and a museum.
Do not raise the gas tax? Stop wasting the money you get from us already? Gas tax money should only be used to repair or build bridges and roads. And instead of building new bridges, why don't we fix the ones we have already?
I am not a bottomless pit for the federal government to mismanage the money it collects from me to spend on other things.
"No" to a higher gas tax.
