(KTVI)-   It might be bad timing, but a local group plans to use a wrecked bus as a prop in support of the Missouri Transportation tax proposal.

The Laborers International Union has been touring the country with a school bus carrying a prop resembling a piece of a fallen bridge.

They’re pushing Congress to pas a fully-funded highway bill.

They are also endorsing “Amendment 7”, which includes the three-quarter cent sales tax hike for transportation, on the August 5th ballot.

    I have an idea! If this Laborer’s Union is so for this tax, then why don’t we make it a sales tax that ONLY UNION WORKERS pay?

    This is just phony sensationalism – the same trick wealthy trash of all sorts use to get votes for unpopular and unnecessary ideas. This bus wreck probably was because an inferior union made bridge fell down on the bus – money won’t fix that problem!

    This is the LARGEST SALES TAX INCREASE IN MISSOURI HISTORY. You OF COURSE know to vote NO, right?

    VOTE NO ON THIS PHONY SALES TAX HIKE. Besides, it’s not about safety, it’s about more money for those who already have plenty! Want better bridges? Then ask Republicans to drop their income tax CUT for the wealthy and make the rich pay their share of income taxes – simple as that.

    VOTE NO! VOTE NO! VOTE NO!

    what is the probability that this overpass was going down, and the union got together with demolition crew, and made deal for the pic. I say very high. Do not tax my shirts and shoes to pay for roads this is a user tax only, not my friends that do not even drive. biggest scam of the last several years. no more nonsense about how it is only a few pennies on a 10 dollar purchase, only thing one can get for 10 is a sandwich and a cup of coffee. nixon opposed to such had the opportunity to veto, the dem bosses told him how when and where he must perform, this phony front he puts on is disgusting.

    The liberal left’s typical mantra……TAX AND SPEND, TAX AND SPEND! The answer to the Union endorsed amendment #7 should be an obvious one……NO!!!!!
