Maryland Delegate Offers Bill to Prohibit Sticky Fingered Progressives Raiding Dedicated Trust Funds

Delegate Pat McDonough introduced a Constitutional amendment recently that will prohibit the Governor and General Assembly from transferring money out of the dedicated trust funds. The politicians in Annapolis have confiscated almost a billion dollars from the Transportation Trust Fund over the years. These stolen taxpayers' monies have been used for non-transportation projects, like funding the purchase of land in order to save the trees.

Now, the same politicians want to replace the missing transportation money with an increased sales tax on gasoline. At the current gas prices, that new tax would be as much as 25 cents per gallon. This misdeed will make Maryland have the highest gas taxes in the nation. The tax gas hike is completely unnecessary. The gas tax hike and the raiding of the transportation Trust fund are the equivalent of Jesse James robbing a bank and the police requiring that the depositors replace the stolen money.

Citizens should contact the House Appropriations Committee at 410-841-3000 and ask the delegates to support Delegate McDonough's Constitutional amendment. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Del. McDonough at 410-841-3334.

" Friends and neighbors complain that taxes are indeed very heavy, and if those laid on by the government were the only ones we had to pay, we might the more easily discharge them; but we have many others, and much more grievous to some of us. We are taxed twice as much by our idleness, three times as much by our pride, and four times as much by our folly. "

-- Benjamin Franklin
