    CA Gas Tax Redirected ... unfortunately ... no one is shocked into voting differently

    Tuesday, September 24, 2019
    Remember when Democrats increased the gas tax with the sole promise of “improving local and state roadway systems?”

    Late in the day on September 20, 2019, when he thought no one was watching, Governor Newsom quietly passed an executive order directing $5 billion of transportation funding to be redirected to his Climate Change Scoping Plan, which focuses on “encouraging” Californians to give up cars.

    In 2017, California Dems promised voters that the just passed gas tax would be used to “rebuild our aging roads.” Now Democrats are saying they don’t care about the roads.

    In addition to breaking the promise to voters – who now pay the highest gas prices in the nation thanks in part to the SB 1 gas tax – Newsom’s quiet diversion also means $5 billion less for road repairs and improvements.

    They also assured us this money was in a "lock box" and could not be used for anything but road improvements.

    Sacramento is filled with liars, whores and thieves. In other words Democrats.

    Yeah Ole Governor Ebers in WI just jacked our vehicle title fee 100 bucks starting 10/1/2019. Now 170 bucks to title a vehicle. Plus increased the car plate fee $10 on top of the counties $30 new tax. All with the promise of fixing the roads.

    My bet will be by the end of the year it will all go into the school fund. Maybe a kick back for some union GM workers on strike. Going for the roads I seriously doubt it. It's just the new liberal tax scam to hose the people over. Same ole story and we keep falling for it.

    What I find hilarious is ole dip chit is wasting tax payer funds to study why people aren't saving enough money. Well maybe if you keep raising fee's on everything and taxing the crap out of poor people they won't save anything. What a fricken idiot.

    He also has threatened to pull the funding for areas that don't meet his new housing requirements after it was promised to the voters that was not allowed. the voters who voted for it where fools and those of us who said this was a bad deal are stuck paying the price. But then again the cities voted for Newsom forcing us to deal with him.

    As I have said before, Hitler was correct in his assessment of people in general when it involves politics, they are stupid and have short memories. Kalifornia perhaps is a bit more stupid, but the country as a whole is not that far behind.

    This is a many layered shit cake of a problem in CA. Yes many of the electorate is either stupid or apathetic but there is also the problem of massive corruption. The Democrats have managed to rig the system so much they can't and won't be voted out, ever. Now with the ballot harvesting it is a slam dunk for them, they can do what they want. To get rid of them they will have to be physically removed.

    No need to worry. All the construction companies in the pocket of Sacramento are being well taken care of with the High Speed Rail boondoggle and building luxury condos for the homeless.

    The end game for the left has always been a single party system, socialism. They aim to have it come hell or high water and it will be necessary to "PHYSICALLY" remove them. Thus the need for them to get the guns.
