Tolls to extend Rte. 11? Don't make him laugh

Our state Democrat legislators continue to demonstrate how unqualified they are to govern. Their plan to implement $2 to $5 tolls on an extended Route 11 is ridiculous. Do they really think people will pay that price for that short section of road when they can simply use Route 85? This plan will only push more traffic onto Route 85.

And then to insult us further by claiming that it will only be in place until the highway is paid for is simply laughable. The Democrats in this state have never found a tax or fee worth repealing. Once they get their hands on an income stream they will certainly find new and inventive ways to spend it.
