Most people don't oppose toll roads as they have been created in the US with toll roads supplementing our public highways.
What Rep. Mike Krusee has ushered in, in Texas is a scheme that diverts tax dollars intended for freeways into double tax freeways. Even worse, Krusee's new transportation scheme creates monopolistic tollways where freeways should be — as already taxpayer funded right of way (that were always promised as a public expressways) get converted into an unaccountable daily double tax (Says the Texas Comptroller's report) for drivers.
Krusee is a con artist with no college degree, and the yearly shifting source of income he states within public records is highly questionable. See my formal complaint to the Texas Ethics Commission about Krusee's source of income.
