MARC benefits Baltimore, so why are the rest of us paying for it?

In regards to the article about MARC adding weekend service to Washington ("MARC gets a boost," may 20): Once again we are supporting Baltimore City with our gas tax for the MARC train to go from Baltimore to Washington. Next it will be the Red and Purple lines. I am sick and tired of supporting another give-away program. This will not help me or a lot of other taxpayers in Maryland, the state that taxes anything that moves.

Let the transportation system pay for itself or cut it back until it can make money. I would like to see the money go to repairing the roads, bridges and dredging all the waterways.
