This is to
bring to light that the area where I live has no public transportation, so to get anywhere
I have to buy a car and pay taxes and title and transfer fees. Then to put that car on the
road I need insurance, annual inspections and emission tests, a drivers license and
registration. Using the car requires gas, oil, tires, upkeep and repairs. All of these
things are taxed, yet there is no state subsidy for me.
I believe public transportation is not a bad idea, but it should not be run or subsidized
by the government. Private enterprise would assure that service would be provided out of
what the consumers would be willing and able to pay. I see no reason why I should be
paying the full cost of my own transportation and then be taxed to pay part of someone
elses travel costs.
legislature should get out of a business of mass transit since it didnt belong to
