We seem to have an endless sum of money for thousands of miles of expensive bicycle/jogging paths (but of course there will be no money down the road for their upkeep!) which are used by only a small percentage of taxpayers. Has money meant for roads and bridges been siphoned off to construct all these paths? It seems that our government, regardless of which party is "running the show," goes out of its way to misuse our tax dollars, then comes back demanding even more. This waste and refusal to properly prioritize our nation's needs is abominable to us taxpayers who struggle to live within our ever-shrinking family budgets, and it has to stop.
