“We all know government can’t stand to give up a source of revenue”

Ga. 400 toll may not expire as promised |
The 50-cent toll on Ga. 400, set to expire next summer after the road finishes paying for itself, may be extended for years to fund improvements along the highway, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has learned.

The state is also considering an increase in the toll to $1 for those who pay cash, to encourage drivers to sign up for a Cruise Card, according to local officials who have been briefed on the idea by the State Road and Tollway Authority.
I don't think anyone ever seriously believed that the Ga. 400 toll would go away. Isn't a politician's promise sort-of the Gold Standard of Lying?
