Tonight’s the night for you to compete with those who will benefit financially from hiking your toll taxes by 88%.
Don’t know if I’ll get a chance to talk, but, if I do, I certainly will point out that an 88% toll tax hike on top of Governor Pat Quinn’s 67% income tax hike demonstrates too well the Democrats are the party of higher taxes.
I shall ask why the Tollway Board has
- made no effort to capture the State Motor Fuel Taxes and
- made no effort to capture Federal highway aid that comes to Illinois as a result of the Interstate highways operated by the Illinois Toll Highway Authority.
The result of not seeking this money means that 45% or less ends up in the six county area, where most of the tolls are paid.
