Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick on Monday laid tax and fee increases and new taxes on the table, including more than doubling the state´s gas tax. He's seeking more than $1 billion a year in new revenue to fund projects designed to fund public transit and highway operations, reduce MBTA debt and borrow money to double infrastructure spending. Beacon Hill leaders reportedly signaled agreement.

Coming soon to a federal government near you. Check out the specific ´revenue enhancement.´ This will be a huge burden on the middle class, whom the Democrats have vowed to protect.

Read the comments under the article itself.

The state of Mass has apparently lied in the past about what the money was intended for...as opposed to where it actually went.

Guess the Democrat Governor up there figured out that "soaking the rich" for their "fair share" would not give enough money.... so... guess who gets hit the most?

The middle class who keep voting for the Dems because of what the Dems say..and ignore what the Dems actually do.

Seems the words "fair share" actually means "fare share"... everybody pays to ride the Dems bus.

If Massachusetts keeps voting for and electing people in favor of higher taxes, its residents should accept higher taxes as the desired outcome of their votes.

Patrick was due to be voted out of office in 2010, so the Democrats, in desperation, prevailed on one of their own to run as an "Independent" third party candidate. That guy siphoned off enough votes from Charlie Baker, the Republican candidate, so that Patrick was re-elected with a 47% plurality. Otherwise Baker would have won easily.

Patrick is a lot less popular than Scott Brown.

The Ma. Governor must not realize that a gas tax is REGRESSIVE and he is in a PROGRESSIVE party. The lower the income, the higher the % of it you pay for fuel ( taxes ).

Another Democrat "paradise" that re-elected a Democrat cockroach to run the state. You get what you vote for.

What a contrast of blue states to red states. Governors in red states are moving to eliminate state income taxes or gas taxes. Red state governors are still raising taxes. Next census, MA, IL, and MI will lose more electoral votes and TX, SC, etc. will pick them up.

#8 has Patrick´s number. This guy says the state needs more money to maintain the ´infrastructure´. Yet he continues to support such extravagances as in-state tuition for illegal aliens and state-sponsored sex re-alignment treatments for convicted felons, while also opposing measures to combat rampant welfare and medicare abuse and fraud. I call him "mini-O" because he´s a clone of the affirmative-action occupant of the Oval Office.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
