Toll is a Four Letter Word for TAX!  Stop Toll Abuse Now!

Special Guest North Carolina Representative Robert Brawley (R) adamantly opposes toll taxes and will do what it takes to shut-down toll roads in North Carolina.

  • Rep Brawley resigns as chair of the House Finance Committee.  In his resignation letter addressed one of his great concerns; Rep Brawley stated "Toll Roads are just another way of taxing. I fought them during Democratic administrations because I felt like the Democrats were just trying to use another financing scheme to build something they could take credit for while passing the debt on to future generations."
  • During an interview with NBC Charlotte, Rep. Brawley stated "My general opposition to toll roads is I feel we, the consuming public, are paying twice (with tolls)."
  • Legislator Opposed I-77 Tolls - "Brawley said the state could use the $170 million it plans to put toward the toll project for new general-purpose lanes that could be built for $100 million or less."
