propasaurus: "It's a working man's bridge," she said. "You stand out there in the morning during the week, as opposed to Saturday and Sunday, it's full of people going to work."Yeah! And working men should get free bridges!
doglover: fark toll bridges. Pain in the ass to stop and pay tolls when you're driving.
Slaxl: Tolls aren't taxes. They're tolls. A tax is a tax.

TuteTibiImperes: Bridges don't spontaneously manifest out of the ether. They have to be paid for via taxes or tolls. Personally, I prefer the tax route as paying tolls creates traffic backups and is a general PITA, but somehow I doubt the teabaggers would support that either.
Argh Not Again: Every bridge should have a toll. Free bridges are socialism.
OneTimed: You gotta pay the troll toll to get inside this boy's soul hole
Monkeyhouse Zendo: I guess Tea Party Patriots are all about paying for things with usage fees when it they're not the ones using it.
GoldSpider: The Tea Party ideology boiled down: "We don't want to pay for things!"
Muta: I hate stopping for tolls. They should just increase taxes to cover the cost of maintaining the bridge.
doglover: Muta: I hate stopping for tolls. They should just increase taxes to cover the cost of maintaining the bridge.This. I'm pretty sure the Tea Party wasn't the only group against the tolls. Bridges are ALREADY choke points. Adding a toll booth or three doesn't help anyone.
cram_hole: So they are protesting a 10 cent toll...how much did those shirts and signs cost? Or is this one of those principal things, where you spend $500,000 in legal fees to not pay someone $50.
RedPhoenix122: Slaxl: Tolls aren't taxes. They're tolls. A tax is a tax.A toll is a toll, and a roll is a roll, and if we don't get no tolls then we don't eat no rolls.
