The Maryland Democratic legacy: Tax, fee and toll hikes

Democrats have controlled the state of Maryland for over 40 years. If the average citizen cannot see the danger of one party control we are in serious trouble.

Consider the following burdens for us Marylanders: A 15 percent increase in the gas tax; a doubling of the cost of a vehicle emissions test; a ridiculous congressional redistricting map; higher vehicle registration fees; using transportation taxes and fees to balance the general fund budget; increasing tolls; and raising tobacco taxes by $1 per pack.

Why not give Republicans a chance? Things can't get any worse.
