You already pay enough in taxes.
You pay enough in taxes. Yet, the federal government is considering a significant increase in the gas tax to pay for new construction projects. This is wasteful and unfair.
The gas tax already takes a toll on those who can least afford it, especially Hispanics. On average, Latino families earn about $18,000 less than white, non-Latino families. We will carry the burden of a higher gas tax.
But it's not just the cost. Much of the money raised through gas taxes is used on unnecessary construction rather than the essential projects. You're left paying the bill for politicians to come up with ways to spend your money.
The gas tax doesn't need to be raised. Instead, lawmakers should remove costly barriers to construction projects and use the funds they have wisely. Remind your lawmakers you shouldn’t have to pay a higher gas tax, and sign the petition urging them to oppose it!
