BOSTON -- Democrats are looking for a new way to grab even more money from the people of Massachusetts after their hopes for a driving tax were dashed by Gov. Charlie Baker. MassDems Chairman Sen. Tom McGee this week called for expanding tolls to more Massachusetts roads.
"The Democrats' demand to toll nearly every driver in the Commonwealth makes one wonder what way they will come up with next to take people's money," said MassGOP Chairman Kirsten Hughes. "First they claim the income tax hike will be a transportation cure-all, then they want to tax drivers for every mile they drive and now they are calling for new tolls on nearly every major highway in the state. Where does it end?"
