Toll Road deal is private taxation

Voice of the People

What the governor of Indiana and the Republican legislators have really done in creating the toll road lease is to create private taxation.

It is private taxation because the foreign corporation will earn profit off of the citizensí money in paying to use the toll road.

Not only is it private taxation, but all of the profits earned by the foreign firm will not even stay in this country.

Nor, will they go for pubic works projects, but as we all know, they will end up in Australia.

This money will be used as venture capital for some foreign company. What is wrong with this picture?

Sincerely yours,
