By Charlie Langton

Michigan’s roads are a mess and have been for years. How do you fix them? Where do you find the money? Charlie Langton spoke with Rep. Rick Olson, R-Saline, about a plan to fix Michigan’s roads: a gas tax hike. Can Michiganians afford another .09 cents per gallon? Would you be willing to pay more for gas in exchange for much-needed investment in Michigan roads? Would you be willing to pay more for registration fees on top of that? How important are new roads to you?

And was our governor lying about additional federal money coming to Michigan to fix up our roads if we built a new international public bridge? Langton pressed Rep. Olson on this and tries to understand if some of the bridge talk, in relation to rebuilding our roads, has been misleading.

    Wake up you clowns !! a gas tax? we are being ripped off by oil billionaires already and you Gov Snyder you want to tax the retirees who are on a fixed income ; take money away from schools and teachers , and also build a stinking bridge and say we are not gonna be taxed for it ? That is a low down dirty lie

    We are already paying a tax to fix these stinkin roads!! start regulating these 18 wheelers that are tearing our roads up and quit using salt to melt the ice and snow , use sand like Ohio does , AND STOP USING CHEAP MATERIALS TO FIX THEM , GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR A–
