Just another pork barrel
I think they have a point. If taxpayer funds build the network, access prices will be terrible. Just think of all the pols (and their staff and kids and girlfriends) who need no-show jobs after being thrown out of office. That plus refusal to shut down non-payers if they're in sensitive demographics. Cynical? Me? I'm from PA; we've got toll bridges & roads & utilities just designed for that.
