Bad authority, bad!

Doesn’t it just seem a bit disingenuous that New York State politicians are complaining about an authority they created raising tolls? Come one! They LOVE the fact that it’s not themselves directly levying another tax. They get to play it off like they think it’s the worst thing in the world, but the money just keeps on rolling in.

“I am suggesting we stop the madness of the toll increases with the New York State Thruway Authority. Disband them, abolish them, and start over again,” says State Assemblyman Mark Schroeder (D-Buffalo).

“This unwarranted toll increase is a slap in the face to the hard-working residents of Western New York,” Higgins said. “The Thruway Authority has created a fictional budget hole as a means to justify a toll increase that pads their already bloated bureaucratic pockets.”
