But they are saying you should give $779, which is the average tax hike money,  to get the roads fixed. This is Enron accounting, government math. What we’re telling people is yes, the roads are bad, but don’t buy the notion you’re going to save money by giving government your tax dollars, we need to demand that the existing tax which we pay go to the roads” DeMaio said on Good Morning San Diego.
