DontTreadOnMe 2 years, 2 months ago on Pros and cons for regional transportation tax

In Gwinnett alone, this next tax would increase sales tax from 6% to 7%, a 17% increase, hitting low and fixed income families hardest.

Fifteen percent of the revenue taken from our pockets would fund TWO transit projects – a $40M check to the county transit system and a $95M gift to “study” an I-85 light rail system for which construction would NOT START before 2040!

Another 15% of our tax money would provide an open traffic project slush fund for local politicians and bureaucrats.

NONE of these 22 projects have been evaluated for a cost-benefit; there is no proof that they will reduce traffic or add jobs. But it’s proponents WILL benefit mightily.

Gwinnett is representative of the rest of the state.

THERE ARE MANY, MANY ALTERNATIVES TO REDUCE TRAFFIC AND BRING IN JOBS. BUT NONE OF THEM WILL LINE CERTAIN PEOPLE’S POCKET LIKE A NEW TAX THEY CAN BLAME US FOR CREATING.

Georgia, you are being lied to – sold a bill of goods. That USED to be called fraud.

Visit TrafficTruth.net and learn why this tax MUST BE DEFEATED.

Then REMEMBER its supporters at their next election. And TAKE OUT THE TRASH.
