Rob Garagiola Tries To Run From The Gas Tax

February 16, 2012 J


After an unsuccessful attempt to nearly double Maryland's gas tax Senator Rob Gargiola is using disingenuous election time rhetoric by saying he "does not support" Governor O'Malley's 6% sales tax on gas tax.

The truth is even a scaled back gas tax increase, such as Gargiola's proposed 10 cent increase from 2011, still damages the middle class, adds another burden to all businesses that we will pay for, and evaporates too much money from Maryland's economy.

Sen. Rob Garagiola, now running for Congress, says "We have to be sensitive to the economy. We have to be sensitive to people's pocketbooks."
