I do not like added tax. Since I am retired I live on a fixed income. You add tax I do not get a raise and I receive no benefit. The governments have plenty of people working from home make them live off a fixed budget instead of our tax dollars. All you really need is better planning of where you build things and stop growing the govt.

You receive no benefit from transportation infrastructure? I rather doubt that.
