No valid reason for gas tax hike

March 15, 2012

Did the editors of The Sun ever meet a tax increase they didn't like ("Pay now or later," March 14)? If the taxes that are collected for transportation were spent on transportation, there would be plenty of funds for transportation and no need for a gas tax increase. Instead, this fund has been repeatedly looted to support the ever-increasing state government.

Unfortunately, with the Democrats' stranglehold on state government, we will pay now and pay later. The solution is obvious — except to Gov.Martin O'Malley and The Sun — reduce spending.
