Realizing that Corzine's wacky toll hike scheme may be doomed, tax-and-spend Joisey legislators are looking for other ways to pick our pockets. The Associated Press reports: Sen. Raymond Lesniak, D-Union, said that some toll hikes "could be eliminated by increasing the state's 14.5 cents per gallon gas tax by 10 cents now and five cents in 2013. Doing so, he told the Associated Press, would allow the state to pay for transportation work for decades."
One of the few "benefits" we have in Joisey is the [relatively] low tax on gas at the pump. Now, Lesniak and his pals want to take that away from us while they still try to keep some of the toll hikes in place. It's the same old shell game.
Call Lesniak at 908-624-0880. Tell him: No toll hike. No gas tax hike. No new taxes. No way! Cut state spending now!
