The Government makes more Money off Fossil Fuels than the Companies who produce it.
All virtue signaling, all the time
I am shocked that politicians lied.
And Newsome is chuckling: “Those dumb voters actually thought I’d use the money to fix the roads instead of for the high speed rail my buddies are “building” for me.
Californians are dumb. They deserve the government and the taxes they voted for.
Elections have consequences.
And our entertainment.
They’ll be praying for the “big one”.
I am amazed at the stupidity of voting FOR more taxes at any level. Just ignorant.
Sometimes stupid and ignorant cross lines or at least intersect. Or breed with each other.
Went into the general fund to pay for homeless????
Just going to have to come back for more gas tax money, as the last one just didn’t get it done!
It’s not just California. It’s been going on all over for years. Politicians sell a tax as paying for roads or repairs and once approved siphon off big bucks for their pet projects.
I didn’t think any governor of California could be worse than Moonbeam Brown, but Newsome has proved me WRONG. He makes Moonbeam look almost SANE.
Hi-Desert Fwy from Victorville to Palmdale, cancelled last week by Gov Nuisance, after 18 months of planning.
Extra lanes on Hwy 99 south of Fresno, cancelled last week by Gov Nuisance.
50 billion taken from the road fund last week by Gov Nuisance for “other purposes” including the high speed (now mid-speed) rail.
It’s not even going to HSR.
It’s going to house, feed and medicate illegals.
I was afraid whoever replaced Brown would be way worse.
Ah, yes. He must feed the illegals that he is permitting to be appointed to state and local government offices to oversea those foolish American citizen taxpayers who are giving them their free stuff. And what will Newsome do when he runs out of taxpayer money? Hopefully the recall effort will be successful before that happens.
Sheet...the whole country is dumb.
I hope he slips on a banana peel and cracks his head open like an egg.
