::: Deep inside the DC Government :::

Thanks to our Mayor, Lyft and Uber will soon cost you more!

DC Mayor Muriel Bowser released her new budget proposal, which includes details on how the District would pay for Metro. More than $80 million would come from increasing taxes on sales, commercial property and ride-sharing services, such as Uber and Lyft. Under the $14.5 billion budget, DC would raise a handful of taxes to come up with a large chunk of the $178.5 million it would give Metro each year. More than $80 million would come from increasing taxes on sales, commercial property and ride-sharing services, such as Uber and Lyft.

Really Mayor Bowser, aren’t DC citizens already taxed enough? City services are terrible, residential parking is all but non-existent, and the ticket writers are like ravenous dogs lurking in the shadows waiting to strike. The city makes zillions from parking, red light, and speed camera tickets. Why are you asking DC citizens foot the bill for rebuilding “METRO” when Metro’s problems were caused by years of DC government mismanagement?

Carjacked, Raped, then Frozen!

According to D.C. police, a woman was approached by a man while she was sitting in her car last night in Southeast on Buena Vista Terrace, near the D.C. border with Maryland. The man displayed hand gun, then got into her car and forced her to drive to a secluded area where he raped her. Then the suspect made the victim drive to another location in Anacostia Park where he forced her exit the vehicle and jump into the freezing river. U.S. Park Police Sgt. James Dingeldein advised that the suspect later fled the scene in the victim’s black 2016 Toyota Camry, DC tag FB0193. The suspect was described as a thin black male in black jeans and black jacket with a hooded shirt under the jacket. DC police asks that anyone who can identify this individual to call (202) 727-9099 or text your tip to 50411.
