Boy, does the state of Alabama have a deal for you

Imagine the government decided you should pay $6 to drive to work. Every day. And another $6 to drive home. That’s $12 a trip. On top of fuel taxes that just went up. On top of all the other taxes and fees you already pay.

Amber Adams: Alabama is set up for failure ☹️😥. they want everyone to be broke except for the government. just like the Bible says. the government is already doing all over the world. it's sad 😢

Jason Phillips: what about the gas tax just recently passed

Mike Mason: Don't let them do it.. Im an OTR trucker so i see first hand how states get toll happy once they're allowed to build just one... The farther northeast you go the more toll roads you see. they're EVERYWHERE up there.. hell, there's toll roads you need to pay just to get to the toll road!!!And it always starts out with state officials promising that once the construction costs are recouped, they will drop the toll...THEY NEVER DO.If we allow one toll bridge or road or tunnel, pretty soon our state will be festooned with the damned things.

Tammera Smith: i do not have a problem with this

Brock LaMara: i agree those people who use that route should have to pay and i dont think its fair to add on taxes to everyone that lives many miles away or has never been on that route so people ... just suck it up ....save up ....quit going to Applebees every week and pay the yearly toll or .....carpool ....quit bitching and wining like a baby

It's another example of elitism from the ranks of our civil servants.History has seen the same effect on people dating back to Rome, Greece probably back to the dawn of time.By giving civil servants nice offices, expense accounts, special health insurance deals, guaranteed pay raises, and all manner of special treatment that's common for those who are working at the same levels in Private Industry leads to segregating government employees from the ordinary tax payer.they get to make rules they don't have to obey.I imagine they've already built in a way to get a travel reimbursement if they have to use that road
