"A government big enough to give you everything you want,
is big enough to take away everything you have"

P IV has a reader in New York City who is an advocate of mass transit, of course, by the nature of a person living in the Big Apple, makes one fairly dependent on forms of transportation other than personal vehicles.
The contrast between upstate and downstate is probably most apparent in the method in which the inhabitants travel. Hence, the reason the Assembly Democrats are more concerned about subway tolls rather than thruway tolls, Senate Republican's concerned about gas taxes, while the Democrats look the other way.
A dual purpose proposal was identified by the reader; an attempt to reduce fuel consumption and an effort to reduce the political divide between upstate and downstate the reader suggested the return of train transportation that once flourished in upstate New York.
So here is a reader suggestion, bring back LOSRR.
And to emphasize the lack of concern a downstate Democrat has for the gas prices and taxes the people of this state pay here is none other than the "Queen of Kill that Bill" Liz Krueger spewing her rhetoric.
