    I’m no fan of Gov. Christie. But it seems to me that working with the Democrats in the legislature to raise revenue to maintain roads and infrastructure in one of the most heavily traveled corridors in the entire United States is something to be lauded, not snarked at.

    If you disagree, go right ahead and tell us why.

    But please omit the fat jokes. They really do pi$$ me off. We leftists should be better than that.

      I think the leftest are joking more about a RepubliCON who runs on ‘cutting taxes’ then they have such a huuuuugggeee bump at the pump.

      similar to donald’s nationwide plan

      except donald’s has more pocket monies left over for the republiCON crime syndicate to pocket. % wise.

      Don’t think this makes Christie a saint. First of all, nothing is going right for Christie these days. He’s down in the polls, he lost out to Pence for potential vice-president, and he embarrassed himself by cowardly blaming his staff for bridgegate. His only hope of saving his career is to show bipartisanship – until things improve for him.
      And besides, he needed a helicopter to attend his son’s baseball game? What’s that all about? Now, I’m no slim goodie, but I’ve never required a helicopter or private jet to attend my son’s gymnastic meets.

    I have no problem with raising taxes to fix infrastructure, but republicans run on a platform of lower taxes and smaller government.

    In reality they should probably keep the gas tax but reinstate the estate tax to raise additional revenue.

    The article sounds like a lot of PA residents didn’t want to pay their fair share to provide for roads in their state along with other needed government revenue.

    When you give all the tax cuts to big corporations what would one expect to happen to your revenue streams ? This is happening to many republican controlled states.
