Reason Foundation VP Advocates Higher Gas Taxes
An Associated Press story on the 15-member National Commission on Surface Transportation’s call for higher gas taxes, increased tolls, and rush hour fees quotes Adrian Moore, a Vice President of the Reason Foundation. He says that, "I'm not excited about a gas tax increase, but the reality is our current gas tax doesn't pay for upkeep of the system we have now. We can either let the roads go to hell or we can pay more." God forbid that we use some of the money going into our overseas empire or to pay useless commission members to fix the roads. Instead, screw all of the people who drive for a living and screw all of the people who buy products delivered over the roads.
