    In the same month that Logan International Airport hiked its parking rates by $1, Governor Deval Patrick is asking for another $2 parking "carbon fee" as part of his transportation overhaul filed this week.

    The carbon fee, described on page 137 of Patrick's 141-page bill, would that mean a 20- or 30-minute trip to pick up a relative at Logan could cost $6 in parking alone, not including tunnel tolls, which could rise to as much as $7 if legislators fail to pass Patrick's other proposal to raise the gas tax. Three hours in a Logan garage would cost $18; all-day parking in a garage would run $26.

    Between Obama and these blue state politicians, they are going to try to suck every dime out of taxpayers with their newfound sources of revenues to facilitate their mismanaged spending thirst. At least, I live in a red state that is half ass fiscally responsible.

    Why is this in breaking news?
