U.S. Lawmakers Weigh Putting Brakes on State Age Limits for Teen Drivers

Prince of Peeps says:  Another example of the federal government usurping states rights.  Not only that, but they are threatening the states with forfeiture of federal highway monies if they don’t fall in line with federal guide lines.  The federal taxes shouldn’t even be used for highways (with the exception of interstate highways.)  That money should be collected and spent locally by each state.  It is wrong for Uncle Sam to be taking from us, just to give it back to us.  It’s all about control, and this is a perfect example.  It is time for the states to unite and tell dear Uncle to kiss it where the moon don’t shine.  Grow a pair and reclaim our states’ rights.

About Prince of Peeps

I'm the little bird on the backyard fence telling the world about whatever is on my mind. Some people may stop to listen, some may not. I call it the way I see it, and tell it the way I think it ought to be.
