Let Them Eat Cake

 In blog
A Fairfax judge ruled that $81,325.00 in penalties and costs for unpaid fees on the Dulles tool road was not an unconstitutional burden.  Judge Devine wrote, “the fine must be grossly disproportional to the gravity of the offense.” This is not laughing matter, but perhaps a reading of history might be enlightening.  Surely, the saying “let them eat cake” is not forgotten.
Let’s see a person has to pay taxes on income to the state, to the federal government, to the county for real estate property tax, vehicle tax, and if you own a business on gross receipts, and business license, at the minimum.
The state, county and federal government should be able to budget the huge amount of taxes to collect and construct public transportation from these funds.  Instead, the people are asked to pay yet another
“tax” in order to have the privilege to drive on public roads. It’s time for the people to stand up.
