Gas Tax Proposed by O’Malley

February 20th, 2012 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley's proposal to phase in a 6 percent sales tax on gasoline includes money for local road repairs, rules to make it harder to shift transportation dollars to other purposes and a mechanism to delay implementing the tax if gas prices spike. O'Malley introduced the legislation to lawmakers last week. While the Democratic governor had already discussed the general framework of his plan, some details had remained uncertain. With gas prices rising steadily and a sluggish economy continuing- State Senator George Edwards said he doesn’t see a lot of support for the plan on either side of the aisle. He said the state needs to take a big picture approach and address the real problem.

    We need to get rid of O’Malley. He wants to satisfy all of the people, all of the time. That is impossible. The problem is that he wants to give satisfaction to himself and make himself “look bigger”.
    It is his way or the highway.
