Color me not surprised.

Massachusetts democrat governor Deval Patrick is planning on shooting the state economy in the back of the head by raising taxes through the roof.

Just as Gov. Patrick was close to shaking his “Cadillac Deval” image, his administration has disclosed that more than 500 state employees get to cruise home in gassed-up, state-owned vehicles, among them elevator inspectors, a tree climber and a bridge painter.

With gas hovering at around $4 a gallon and the state facing a billion-dollar deficit, administration spokesman Kyle Sullivan, responding to a Herald public records request, released a list of a whopping 501 officials and employees with take-home vehicles paid for by taxpayers.

The sheer size of the state’s take-home vehicles struck fiscal watchdog Michael Widmer as an eye-popping expense as state officials face a crippling budget shortfall.

“With the state running a billion-dollar deficit, every dollar counts,” said Widmer, president of the Massachusetts Taxpayers Association. “It’s time for a review of vehicle usage when you have that many being taken home.”
