He went on to rip transit in the southeast to Rep. Tom Killion (R., Delaware) writing that "Your buses don't do a thing for my constituents. How about we pay for your state roads and bridges, and you pay for your own buses? It is only fair since we only receive funding for our roads and bridges too"
Saccone added his constituents "are fed up with, as they most often say, ‘pouring money down a black hole of inefficiency, patronage and corruption.’ If these investments are necessary then the private sector should and will invest in them. I have had five town halls in the last two weeks and people are disgusted with mass transit funding."
