    They don’t drive on those roads, anyway. Their chauffeurs take the caddy on a less bumpy route.

    Meanwhile, here in Michigan (from the link):

    … the Republican-led legislature balked at his ideas of raising registration fees and fuel taxes. Lawmakers also opted, for now, not to ask voters for a sales tax increase. Instead, the budget framework now pending in Lansing would spend an additional $350 million on roads, well short of Snyder’s goal.

    Note that the teabag-soaked legislature would prefer to raise the (maximally regressive) sales tax (paid even by people with no cars) rather than the gas tax, let alone (heaven forfend) go to a graduated income tax.
