Tolls : Overspending; Safety Concerns and more

  • It should come as no surprise that despite TXDOT's protestations of poverty, they still found the time to give TXDOT MANAGERS thousands of dollars each from a massive taxpayer funded bonus pool. It shouldn't surprise anyone because it's always the Republican way to give money to managers... not the people who actually, you know, do the work.
  • Senator Hinojosa is thinking about sunsetting TXDOT? Oh, be still my beating heart! However, we'd much rather you just got rid of the management. Like the 'tards Saenz and Houghton. Seriously, even for Republicans y'all are pretty damn stupid.
  • There's a rumor going around that Rep. Leo Berman (R - I CAN DO WHAT I WANT) recently told a crowd that he didn't care if taxpayers wanted an indexed gas tax, he was only for toll roads and he'd never work to index the gas tax.

    Does he have a Republican opponent? Or D running against him?

  • No one in East Texas likes TTC - 69. And those good folks own lots of guns.
  • Toll roads are in even worse shape than non-toll roads? You mean privatization isn't giving us better roads? Say it ain't so
