Maryland families can't afford higher gas taxes

November 10, 2010

In response to The Sun's suggestion that Maryland should raise its gas tax to pay for infrastructure ("The tax that saves jobs," Nov. 10), I shop the specials at the Giant in order to save 20 to 30 cents a gallon at the pump. My friends and family are currently unemployed for the last year, had their salaries reduced 20 to 50 percent (not through furlough days) or make salaries less than a "living wage," according to City Councilwoman Mary Pat Clarke's standards. These are the people on whom The Sun wants to raise taxes.
