Re: “None dare mention condemnation on THIS

Um... $5.8M for moving the Conway airport. Doesn't sound like it came from Conway airport user fees. http://tinyurl.com/csxwwnn

Also see studies on the myth of motorists paying their own way... some numbers can be found here: http://tinyurl.com/adoee7

"$200 billion was spent in 2006 on transportation at all levels of government; only just over half of that generated by fuel and vehicle taxes and tolls. The remaining amount comes from property taxes, general fund allocations, bond issues, and fare boxes of transit systems.

The Federal share of all transportation spending is approximately 20% (18% for transit, 22% for highways). So the 18.4 cents per gallon in Federal gas tax is a small percentage of overall spending on highways."

And like Ron said... you keep calling it a hobby but it's transportation for some and based on the percentage of obese people living around here it would be a good choice for a lot more of the population.
