What is wrong with the voters in the 4th Middlesex. When so few turn out to vote. They should hang there heads in shame.

I strongly feel that increasing tolls on the turnpike and tunnels places a heavy burden on those limited number of drivers. Those working people are being asked to cover the huge debt while they struggle to support their families. It is the equivalent of a salary cut, taking away funds that could provide food. Rather than targeting that smaller population, spreading the cost across the whole population of drivers in the form of a gasolene tax would be more fair. In addition, there should be a stipulation that the taxes absolutely are discontinued within a very specified time. I argue this to try to be fair to that one group who uses the Turnpike and tunnls. I am not in that group.
