    Demoncrats never found a tax they didn't like. That will hurt the 1% where they feel it the most. Oh, no, that will hurt the 99% also! That is so cruel! Just another reason to get rid of those evil autos.

This is NOT a bill for repairing the roads! It gives 50% to Transportation projects (i.e. the bullet train to no where)

It includes a constitutional amendment requiring that the money be spent only on transportation projects

Fix Local Streets and Transportation Infrastructure (50 percent)

      You all sound a little bitter. Thank God I live in California. Let's fix the roads, pay for the high speed rail. Protect the environment. Move into a better future.
