Time for you to ask your legislator, congresswoman, senator: where are you at on the Oregon tolling plan?

Those politically aware likely already know about Oregon's ongoing effort to punish Clark County commuters further with a toll on the already paid-for I-5 and I-205 freeways south of the Columbia River.

The point of the exercise is to extort hundreds of millions of additional dollars from Clark County residents primarily because they are well aware that there's really nothing the citizens of this county can do about it except complain.

Curiously, I have already received information that Sen. Ann "Gas Tax" Rivers (D-Strategies 360) doesn't care if tolls are implemented or not.  In fact, if she has her way, Clark County residents will be paying tolls not only to Oregon, but for the CRC/Loot Rail Scam that she and the other Clark County RINO's have been doing their best to resurrect.

Rivers, who became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the left and the other special interests she now represents beginning sometime in early 2015, is personally responsible for ramming hundreds of millions of dollars in gas tax/tab fee increases down our collective throats, and she also co-wrote the last budget that she and the other Legislative RINOs voted for in the last session that has implemented the start of an income tax, while causing our property taxes to skyrocket.

It's amazing that she would be on the pay roll of a democrat campaign firm while "negotiating" with the democrats on a budget that costs us billions.

No conflict of interest there, eh?

So, since Rivers ignores me even though I am a constituent of hers, perhaps she'll be a little more forthcoming with the rest of you.

And while we're at it, don't be afraid to contact our worthless caricature of a congresswoman, who can single handedly put an end to this nonsense since it requires federal approval... meaning federal government approval...and she sits on the House Appropriations committee... which should give her enough muscle to kill this deal if she wanted to.

Of course, don't expect any help from the White House: Jaime burnt that bridge to the ground when she joined with our two fringe-left US Senators to trash President Trump during the campaign... a typically bone-headed move on her part that we will all suffer for. Write in Paul Ryan indeed.

So, sit down in front of your computers and dig up your legislators.  Dig up your council types.  Dig up the elected officials in your city.  Dig up your congresswoman.

And put it to them: where are you at on the Oregon extortion plan.... and what are you going to do about it?
