From Frank Dupree:
Maryland revenues have steadily increased over the last four years yet Governor O’Malley’s administration continues to bemoan budget shortfalls. Maryland doesn’t have a revenue problem; this administration has a spending problem. A spending problem that Governor O’Malley intends to solve by raising taxes (12% on MD families). He’s also proposing a 6% sales tax on gas while prices at the pump are topping $3.75 a gallon. In addition, he is proposing all MD vehicle owners must purchase an easy pass transponder – for each vehicle owned! Governor O’Malley, please stop trying to solve Maryland’s budget shortfalls by loading the burden onto the backs of Maryland taxpayers. We already pay too much!!
