I agree with what you say for the most part, but our local utility company charges one of the highest rates in the country and they make record profits each year. It is greed that puts our lives in danger. This is not a taxable matter this is all about profits.edit on 29-1-2011 by HEATHERTHOMSON911 because: (no reason given)

S & F for you.
Our infrastructure is falling apart because of this economy and political climate...our roads, airports, libraries, police, fire and etc. With all the debt the states are taking on these days things cannot be provided for like we are used too.
Unfortunately it seems that many Americans want great service from all of those above things; however they don't want to pay for it with higher taxes to solve our budget crisis. At this points states have no choice but to leave these things in disarray. America, this is what you voted for and this is our future. A country with a failing infrastructure due to the fact that the citizens want everything for free; while places like China, Japan, and South Korea flying past us on the way to global domination.
