Getting Virginia out of a jam
The Jan. 16 Metro article on Virginia’s transportation problems, “N. Va. likely to be stuck a bit longer,” noted that the state has gone 25 years without raising its fuel tax of 17.5 cents a gallon. Our legislators’ obsession about not raising taxes has a seriously flawed underpinning: the belief that higher taxes would cause Virginians too much pain.
I don’t know how others feel, but I would prefer the pain of paying a little more in taxes to that of wasting countless hours in daily traffic jams.
