Actually, quite the opposite is true. West side tax dollars support the east side. The east side does not collect near as much taxes for roads as is spent there. But look at it this way, by paying for a decent I-90 across eastern Washington, west siders have a way of getting across that dreary place (been to Moses Lake lately?) on the way to some place far better, like Northern Idaho and Western Montana.
