In the face of a storm of criticism, the Oregon legislature has suggested raising gas taxes and auto registration and licensing fees to support road and bridge maintenance. The Doser notes that the argument goes something like this: Why can't the legislature find a tax source among those who do not use the roads and bridges?

This Oregonian is wondering where the 43 cents per gallon of gas tax is going. Isn't that supposed to go to roads and bridges not bike trails and light rail. If you want the drivers to pay higher gas tax, how about the MAX and bike riders paying their fair share.

You want to tax the "good guys" to support the conduct of the "bad guys?"
