Poll: Overwhelming Opposition To Increasing the Gas Tax
A Gonzales poll showed that 77% of Marylanders oppose raising the gasoline tax by 10 cents.
A day later the Washington Examiner reported that the Blue Ribbon Commission on Transportation funding suggested raising the gasoline tax by 5 cents over the next three years.
Elected officials are calling for the massive tax increase because they have stolen almost a billion dollars out of the Transportation Trust Fund to temporarily prop up the General Fund.
Ask your elected officials “why should I pay twice for transportation projects today after Governor O’Malley and the General Assembly stole the money out of the Transportation Trust fund which was supposed to fix our roads yesterday?”
Take the time today to e-mail your elected officials letting them know about this poll, that you still oppose increasing the gasoline tax, and why ask they think you should have to pay twice for their fiscal mismanagement.
Democrats, Republicans, and Independents are all making a huge difference on this issue together!
