To the editor:

Facing a $3 billion budget deficit, the newest tax idea the Democrats are toying with is a mileage tax. This tax will be on top of the $0.33 gas tax which is fifth highest in the country.

Gov. Dannel Malloy and the Democratic leaders have already invested $300,000 into a pilot program to explore this as an option. Don’t let the Democrats try to fool you by saying they will vote against a tax increase. When loyal supporters, such as Dave Zoni, have proven time after time that they will vote for whatever the party dictates.

Joe Pugliese, Plantsville
