I was just down in Phoenix for 5 days last week and was amazed at the awesome roads - well highways at least but for sure the roads in Surprise were terrific on average.
location matters. ;)
The problem with taxing 'the rich' as Ocasio and other socialists clamour for, is that the rich they want to tax never ends up being the billionaires...always the thousandairs. Billionaires and others in those circles, have the ability to start 'foundations' which spend pennies on the dollar towards the charities they supposedly were set up for - in other words, they have all the loopholes whilst ours continue to be lost.
Make no mistake about it, raising taxes is only meant for you and me. Think the democrats want to change this? lol
