[THOMAS] More Tolls, Drain The MA Swamp

Subscribe to WBSM-AM/AM 1420 on

In the name of bettering the common theft, I mean Commonwealth, Massachusetts legislators love to conjure up ways to screw the taxpayer. One State Rep. is proposing to incorporate the Massachusetts Turnpike toll scenario to other state highways. Get ready for more toll roads.

Each year Massachusetts tax receipts keep increasing. Beacon Hill lawmakers and the crony pigs in Boston siphon from our paychecks and purchases to quench their insatiable thirst to spend our hard earned money. To prove the point, Chip Faulkner, with Citizens for Limited Taxation reminds me Governor Baker has proposed an obnoxious $40 billion budget. We keep paying. They keep over spending. Now, the lawmakers are stewing over another screwing. 

Imagine driving down interstate 195 and paying a toll for the short 4 exit trip from Route 140 to the Fairhaven exit. At just one dollar per trip, the state would rake in a bundle. Keep both eyes open for this legislation. I beg that you/we/me vote out any lawmaker affirming more tolls. We have to “Drain The Massachusetts Swamp!”
