It sure beat the feds taxing folks in NJ for a highway or bridge in California and vice versa. The problem at the moment is that both are in place.
    And don't forget we're taxed to death already in this state Ape. When I tell people what property taxes are here, especially with new houses, they can't believe it. Personally, I believe that things like tolls and beach tags should be for out of state people only.

    I disagree, NJ, but keep in mind that my support of tolls is predicated on them being used in lieu of taxes, and we both know that ain't the case. Therefore, I see it as just another double dip that our state is so well known for.
