Now that Proposal 1 to raise taxes on the population has been defeated, the issue of fixing the roads is still here. There is no dispute that roads DO need to be fixed and more money IS needed for public transportation.
The real issue is WHO is going to pay for it. Why should our taxes go up, while businesses have their taxes go down?
You can bet the politicians will come back with another scheme to get working people and the population to pay. Because for them democracy is just a word. “Let the people speak?” Maybe, but the politicians are too busy spending our money to listen. Something stronger than a vote is needed!
