One of the most important governmental function is the building and maintaining our infrastructure , including our roads. This is not the time for a knee jerk reaction to washingtons or local governments to manage their responsibility. We need to make them do what they are supposed to do.

It's not a function of the federal government at all, according to the Constitution. Can we agree that at the minimum it's a state/local issue and the federal government ought to butt out entirely, returning the money it takes for this purpose to the people?

Most of us who pay taxes don't see much of it used for what it was supposed to be paying for. Building and maintaining our infrastructure is one that we do see and get to use. Let's hold our representatives accountable!

we should not have to pay money in the form of toll fees for access to our roads, which happens with both government and private ownership, We have no voice against profit schemes when our roads are owned by a for profit private company, but this tactic should not be used by government either ~ a

If privatization of roads where in the hands of national corporations they may be cost effective.
