If so America has been stealing since day one.
This is a prime example of how monies initially mandated for ONE purpose blends into the general funds....meanwhile the cost of all goods transported gets higher to “we” the consumer through no abberation except for filling the ever growing public tax trough’s...that pigs feed from and align their government contracts to after deciding who “kicked” back the most.
I think it could be said that those roads, and the maintenance on them, was appropriate for the time.
And they were pissed just having to pay taxes on tea. I wonder what they'd think about all the ways the government conceals taxes , especially in Obama 's new socialist order.
