It's about the spending
If there’s one thing that State government is good at, it’s creating taxes.  Income taxes, gasoline taxes, property taxes, sales taxes…the list goes on and on.  They even figured out a way to tax taxes. Then there are fees to permit hunting, fishing, driving, and fees just to walk in the park.  Creating inventive ways to fund itself is not a problem for State Government.

We have the money.  The problem is HOW MUCH we SPEND, and HOW we spend it.

Transportation needs real solutions… not 19th century ones
Investing in roads and bridges, not light rail, brings immediate benefits.  It gets people home faster, not wasting time in traffic jams.  It moves freight faster, saving labor costs.  It reduces car accidents and injuries, caused by snarls and back-ups.  It reduces overflow traffic onto feeder streets, improving neighborhood safety and increasing pavement lifespans.  And it saves energy, but not wasting gasoline either idling or in start-‘n-stop traffic.

We do need government … but smaller is better
For my Democratic friends, let me repeat this:  We do need government.  We do need a government to handle public safety, courts, snow plowing roads, and many other tasks that do make sense for government to do.  The problem is that we could do just as well with a much SMALLER level of government, both in terms of its size and intrusiveness into our lives.
