Conservatives Look To Punish GOP By Backing Democrats

August 15, 2007

Anti tax activists are looking to punish Republican lawmakers for their support of the new transportation funding law by threatening to back Democrats this fall.

Representatives of groups normally aligned with Republicans called the law a "a horrible piece of skullduggery" that could cost the party control of the legislature.

John Taylor, president of Tertium Quids, an organization of anti-tax libertarians and conservatives predicts voter backlash against Republicans responsible for the 2007 Transportation Act.

In 2006, House and Senate Republicans quarreled for nine months over transportation funding before agreeing this year on their intricate compromise.
