Gas tax a backroom deal

Michael Dresser's article, "Gasoline tax increase advances" (March 21) says that this absurd and ridiculous plan to raise gas taxes is "the result of painstaking behind-the-scenes negotiations among [Gov. Martin] O'Malley, Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller and House Speaker Michael E. Busch over a way to raise revenue for the state's roads, bridges, transit and other transportation needs."

Yet another example of the "we know better what's good for than you do" mentality. Behind the scenes? Can you say backroom negotiations? How about what the population wants?

And these people keep getting re-elected, despite what they do to us. Truly remarkable!
