Reaping What We Sow VIII - Maryland Edition

Socialist governments traditionally do make a financial mess. They always run out of other people's money. It's quite a characteristic of them. -- Margaret Thatcher
I wrote about this at the end of January and one of the things that I mentioned is that O'Malley and his chums moved a lot of money out of the Transportation Fund into whatever pet projects they had. The story does nothing to mention that particular aspect until a roundabout mention in the final sentence:
The new proposal would also make it more difficult for lawmakers to slate transportation money for anything but transportation projects.
And all it takes is to strip $3.4 billion from the taxpayers of Maryland.  Why did we elect this guy again?

Oh right, he has a D next to his name "fights for the little guy", and by "little guy" he means public sector unions and casino executives.
