From Del. Glen Glass:
Yesterday a group of Freshman Republican House members released the findings of a recent statewide Gonzales poll showing 96% of Marylanders, both Republicans and Democrats, believe they pay too much (66%), or the right amount of taxes (33%), – with only 4% feeling they pay too little in taxes.
In a press conference with other GOP Freshman yesterday, Delegate Glass said the residents of Harford County pay too much in taxes. This economy has everyone struggling to just get by and now O’Malley is asking the citizens to pay even more out in taxes. The cost of gas is so high and now they want to tax that more. The cost of electric and gas bills have doubled andfood costs are higher but…it’s just more taxes! Taxes to cover things like the Transportation Fund that was already paid for but because it was raided, now needs to be replenished. Millionaires are now anyone making $100,000 or more.
We need to have mercy on the working people who are just getting by and don’t have any extra money to pay the taxes.
The 15 House GOP Freshmen are solidly unified behind this message!
