Re "DOT backs tolls for highway reconstruction" (Nation, April 30): Paying for our nation's dilapidated infrastructure is all about priorities. The ruling class has dictated that those funds must be diverted to oil and other corporate subsidies, military contracts and tax breaks for corporations and the wealthy.

Instead of having any national pride or a sense of shared responsibility, the oligarchy has instructed the White House and Congress to remove the restrictions on toll roads. Implementing tolls on our nation's interstate highways is just one more burden placed upon an already failing middle class.
