"Jim Barbarich, chamber board chairman and interim president, said the project has been three decades in the making and the bill is about safety, jobs and economic development. "This is key for companies relocating here," he said." Another validation of Obama's comment about not building it by yourself. Doesn't make him right about everything, but to argue his point as Republicans did in the '12 election was foolish.

"Oh, JOY!!! We get to fund SEPTA!"

Well Nobud I suppose people in Philly could say the same about the CSVT project. What benefit do they get. In fact I just read an article that the shale boom industry pushed this project. Funny it has been in the works for a long time now it will finally get done. Not much wonder Yaw and his republican buddies jumped on this.

If all the money generated from this went into the roads and bridges that would be great. I'd like to know (when I get time I'm going to check)how much of these funds will go into the general fund? I'd bet it's 50%. It all should go to the roads and bridges.

Oh, JOY!!! We get to fund SEPTA! These pols all see the cities as voting blocks to be coddled and cultivated at the expense of the rest of us who choose not to live in that mess. If SEPTA and and Pittsburgh's Port Authority can't make it on the fares they charge and taxes collected locally, then let them close up shop. We should not have to subsidize those operations. And now with the cap lifted from the gas tax there will be no end in sight. I really hate politicians, both sides of the aisle.

Erik, you are correct. These dolts think if you tax any business those costs will not be passed along to the consumer. And those who live on the govt dole think the same way. Very frustrating.

These moron Democrats think a severance tax on natural gas would not be passed on to the same seniors on fixed incomes.

It shows how little these liberal legislators really understand about economics.

$2.50 a week here, rising food prices over there, Obamacare's increased costs, stagnant wages - What the hey were you guys thinking? There well is running dry. We the man and woman on the street don't get the yearly increases and perks you folks get to help defray these non-essential cost increases. And yes they are non-essential increases the state receives more than enough to maintain and repair and build roads and bridges. I don't agree with the Democrats but I am starting to dislike the Republicans we elect even less. At least with the Democrats I know where I stand with Republicans it's like the old Indian saying, "white man speak with forked tongue".
