Gas tax: More money is not the an­swer

Manteca Bulletin - - Opinion - Wil­liam R. Jef­fers Man­teca

Edi­tor, Man­teca Bul­letin, The claim: Pass the gas tax and many good things will be done. How many times have I heard that? We ( Cal­i­for­ni­ans) pay the most taxes now. Where is it go­ing? (As if we don’t know.)

The truth: Pass­ing Propo­si­tion 6 is like wa­ter that takes the easy route. We need to tell Sacra­mento some­how more money is not the an­swer, bet­ter gov­ern­ment and all the rest is, but I know that will not hap­pen. Hurt will only cause is to change the form of gov­ern­ment that will re­ally screw things up. You call the amount, I’ll call the bet. It’s go­ing to hap­pen. Our so called free press de­mands it.
