This post is aimed at my North Carolina readers … but all are welcome to follow the link. Maybe reading about how the Tarheels are being fleeced will make ya’ll feel better about where you live!
In the last four years, a 37% increase in the gas tax is costing North Carolina drivers an extra $300 million a year. The National Federation of Independent Business, the nation’s leading small business organization, says our state’s gas tax – the highest in the Southeast- is part of the reason why small business in North Carolina is hurting compared to our neighboring states.
While increasing the gas tax, the Legislature has drained $1 billion out of the Highway Trust Fund in the last four years. That’s part of the reason why we have the 5th worst roads in the country.
It is time to restore common sense to Raleigh. It is time to stop spending $400,000 on a teapot museum and $2 million on an ACC Hall of Fame.
Your signature on our petition will show the Legislature that people at the grassroots are outraged over high gas taxes that will go even higher in the New Year. Please tell your friends and associates to sign on and check the website for updates.
