Yes it used to be that federal gas taxes went into a highway trust fund. But all of that money was stolen under Clinton.
Now the money doesn't go into a fund and is used to subsidize ticket prices for NY railroads and other projects.
The federal GAS tax needs to be eliminated.
Property taxes are all local and the renters vote on them. Problem is poor renters are to stupid and keep voting in new property taxes causing rent to go up. Its one of the reasons why the large cities are failing because the renters keep voting for higher taxes.
" fair distribution of wealth" This is socialism, we live in a free country. In every country this " fair distribution of wealth" has been tried it has failed.
We need to forget about this fair distribution socialism and go back to what has worked in the US for 100's of years.
