Republican Larry Hogan was elected governor on a pledge to cut taxes, cut red tape and reduce spending. Hogan never held office before, but Maryland voters were evidently weary of the experienced spenders they had.
Voters are reaping the dividends of the upset. Hogan cut charges on every toll road in the state. The cash fee for crossing the Bay Bridge dropped from $6 to $4 and the E–ZPass charge was cut almost in half, to $2.50.
It’s the first time in 50 years tolls have been lowered.
Naturally Democrats are panicked. Voters could get used to paying less money to the state taxman. Then they might start voting for Republicans and Democrats would have to find honest work.
