AJC Poll: Georgians Want Transit, Not Tax
That just sums up America for me.
We want to have things.
We do not want to pay for things.
And we do not see the disconnect.
Georgians overwhelmingly support greater access to buses and trains to improve transportation in the state, but they have very little interest in increasing taxes to pay for them, an exclusive new poll for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution found.
The poll, conducted Monday through Thursday, found nearly 60 percent of Georgians believe improving transportation is important and nearly 70 percent support new bus and rail lines. Yet only 36 percent of respondents said they’d pay higher taxes to fund any kind of transportation project.
This is why we can't have nice things.
