First the governor wants to raise this and that, and next thing you know it's 15 cents more in tax for a gallon of gas. How about we tax our Maryland elected officials that extra 15 cents for every hour they spend going around in circles on just about everything that's important to the lives of people in Maryland?

Of course, if such a tax were actually in place, maybe this state's elected representatives would stop cooling their heels and pass some sensible legislation.
