New Gas Tax Dollars Spent on Mass Transit First
Over the last 3 years Americans for Prosperity Maryland exposed the fact that Governor Martin O’Malley and Annapolis prioritizes mass transit first. The word got out and drivers resented seeing their tax dollars get spent on mass transit projects they don’t use.
Right after Governor O’Malley signed his staggering 80% gas tax hike on Maryland drivers he announced expanding weekend MARC service to Washington DC. Never mind that all of Maryland’s mass transit system operates on losses and must be subsidized by drivers.
O’Malley is also expecting Marylanders to forget about all the money he stole from road and bridge projects. Many projects could have been completed years ago at a cheaper price tag if he responsibly set priorities for the State. Instead tax payers are being forced to pay for these same projects again because O’Malley stole dedicated tax dollars.
