That was the lie that was told to Houston residents when they were building the beltway around Houston. The politicians said the tolls would stop after twenty years. When the twenty years was up, a reporter confronted the guy who was in charge of the toll roads.
He said, "If we eliminate the tolls on the beltway, we will have to find another source of revenue for the new roads we are building." Of course, the guys who were in charge twenty years ago are long gone and can't be held accountable for the false promises they made.
