    States Need Funds For Infrastructure...
    :confused:
    New tax hikes eyed for roads, transit
    January 25, 2013 - States are scrambling to find taxes to pay for highway repairs and their public transit systems, including payroll and sales taxes, and raising taxes paid by gasoline stations.

    Does this really have to be explained?

    In one way the country is like a company. Without investment by the owners, there is no competition. We need modern roads and bridges and rails to move product and supplies. We need sewers and clean water. We need an uninterrupted source of electricity.

    Republicans have fought to keep from investing in America. They see medical bills being the number one cause of bankruptcy as a "success". They don't want Americans educated.

    In fact, when you look at what al Qaeda wants for America and what Republicans want, there doesn't seem to be much of a difference, not really.

    Fine. But, don't come here bitching when your street falls apart, you open the tap and no water comes out, the sewer backs up into your bathroom and the bridge you cross going to work collapses and kills someone.

    Ok? Take the minuscule amount you'll save in taxes and fix all that yourself. Be a good, self-reliant, right-wing, tax free, Nutter citizen!

    Hey old retarded fart,, I'm fine with rebuilding Americas infrastructure as long as it's done with a "right to work rule in place" you got an arguement with that?
