Your Views: More taxes will mean more workers to lean on vehicles

POSTED: July 20, 2012 1:00 a.m.

No more taxes! I am self-employed with income down 80 percent from five years ago. When I see six DOT employees leaning on five state-owned vehicles while one man is cutting a tree, I realize: Wow, they get insurance and retirement, too.

T-SPLOST will increase the number of state employees who are leaning for a living, while the tax man leans on the working class. Do you need more state taxes? Will you use public transportation?

Do not hand them T-SPLOST. Let the Georgia DOT cut some fat and waste, and survive like the working class. Also watch some of your county employees who have learned it is easier to lean than lead.
