Wanted: Better Transportation, Will Pay For It
A growing number of Americans are unsatisfied with their transportation options and are willing to pay higher taxes to improve transportation in their area. Fifty five percent of those polled felt that traffic in their area had worsened in the last five years, and a similar percentage approved of higher taxes to improve roads and public transportation. Respondents from the West were more likely to be dissatisfied with traffic, and not just in large cities. Congress is trying to pass a transportation bill to fund highways and transit, but political differences have stalled it. The President has vowed to veto any transportation bill he deems too expensive.
