I read in Thursday's paper (Page 1A) our state Senate is seriously looking at toll roads for Wisconsin to fill in the shortfall. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos actually said, "it's a good idea; it's the future."
Not if I can help it. Toll roads are a disaster. First and foremost, they are a tax. Let's not forget that. Second, it is government encroachment into our lives once again. That is never good. Third, it seems the funds raised never seem to make it to the roads. Just ask Illinois. Also ask them if their "temporary toll roads" as it was supposed to be ever left?
Fourth, that little transponder that goes onto your car lets Big Brother know where you are at all times. Do we really want that? I don't. (Personally, I think this is why it's so "good for Wisconsin.") It used to be the states held the power OVER the federal government. Not so. We now rely on them for our funding, but that comes with rules and regulations and strings attached.
I implore any and everyone to contact Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitgerald and Vos before we have to pay to use our own roads again and again.
