Opinion - Tax for thee, but not for me

Prince Frederick, MD - This week, Kevin Kamenetz became the seventh Maryland Democrat to challenge Governor Larry Hogan.  Kamenetz is the county executive of Baltimore County.

In 2013, Kamenetz lobbied strongly for an increase in the Gas Tax, but opposed dedicating the tax to roads & bridges. Without dedicating the funds, the Gas Tax can be used for any spending.  While this is not unusual for Maryland Progressives, what happened next is more troubling.

One year after the Gas Tax passed, Kamenetz realized the tax would cost Baltimore County $1.6 million.  So, he lobbied Annapolis to exempt Baltimore County Government-owned cars & trucks from paying the tax.
