I'm interested in how Washingtonians feel about Hogan's plans to NOT BUILD the proposed RedLine?

I think he is way too late.

In terms of Baltimore. It was a project destined for failure. His cancellation combined with his pushing through the purple line proved to me he was extremely pragmatic. If he cancelled both it would have shown me he was just anti-transit. Instead he proved to be more or less reasonable and able to analyze the benefits vs the cost of the potential transit systems. Seriously, I usually do not like members of the GOP, but he seems more grounded in reality and good governance than most.

Why would DC care about a line in Baltimore?

Huh?!! What kind of question is that?! Aren't there people who work in DC, but choose to live in Baltimore due to DC's high real estate taxes?

You do realize DC's real estate tax rate is below Baltimore's right. The only reason somebodies tax bill might be higher is because their home is worth more, because DC is a nicer city to live in. To be honest, my real estate taxes are very low compared to other cities and suburbs in the US.
