  WILL IT BE THE YEAR THE TAXPAYERS REVOLT?

NO MORE USING THE TAXPAYER AS AN ATM 

 NO MORE CONDEMNING THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY
and
NO MORE ADDITIONAL COSTS ADDED TO PRODUCTS SOLD IN RI 

REMEMBER, TOLLS ON TRUCKS TODAY, CARS TOMORROW! 

Ultimately, Truck Tolls will become Car Tolls & those Toll gantries will be nothing more than a taxpayer ATM machine for the RI DOT.

Gaspee_Donate_.pngBridges must be fixed and maintained, but not from a new spigot of revenue. Reprioritizing the bloated state budget — so we don’t have to bribe businesses to locate or expand in RI, so we don’t increase the already high taxpayer burden, so we don’t add to the state’s already back-breaking pile of debt — should be your candidate’s goal. Do you think tolls will move us from 50th place in the CNBC business friendly ranking? THEY KNOW TOLLS ARE A LOSING ISSUE!

If Tolls were the right way to go, then why is it noticeably missing from Speaker (and Cranston representative) Mattiello’s campaign literature? It was one of the most sweeping pieces of legislation in recent memory, yet he forgot to include it as one of his accomplishments!

And why was Democratic Chair and Warwick Representative McNamara incensed when we sent a mailer indicating that he voted for tolls?

SEE WHERE YOUR CANDIDATE STANDS. 
IF THEY HAVEN’T RESPONDED, ASK THEM WHY.

  • You have made an awesome showing with http://www.uhjackets.com/ regards to. I will digg it and by and by prescribe to my companions
  • They tell you it cost $100. per truck to drive over the George Washington Bridge, but do not tell you that truckers avoid buying fuel in N.Y. in protest, which costs the state much more than the income from that toll. A truck toll would make the price of all goods for everyone go up, so it would have been better and brought in money immediately if they had just raised to tax on fuel. If R.I. put all of the federal funds sent to R.I. for the highway funds and all that fuel tax money into the highway fund instead of dumping it into the “general fund”, and spending it on things that have nothing to do with it’s intended purpose—the highways and bridges would be just fine.What a scam!
  • Google “Annual Highway Report” by the Reason Foundation. Read it and you would not trust the DOT to fill a pothole. RI has 1,099 state highway miles and 2,887 “lane-miles”. We spend (Page 27) between Road & Bridge, Maintenance and administrative disbursements, over $533,000 per state controlled mile!! Only three states spend more, Florida, Massachusetts and New Jersey. Even Connecticut is “only” $470,000 per state controlled mile.

    Notice also on Page 22, most states with higher Administrative costs per mile are huge liberal states – MA, NY, MD, CA, NJ. The only exception is Florida.
