What is Md. getting for its millions on business development agencies?

November 22, 2011

Now that it's official and public knowledge that Maryland is last in job creation and only 6th from last (44th) in having a business-friendly environment according to the Tax Foundation, some response is required. Let's get rid of the Baltimore Development Corporation, the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development and any public or quasi-public group in this state that has business development in its charter. Think of all the millions of dollars we could save to put to better use, like lowering the personal and corporate tax rates here.

The economic policies from the dim bulbs in Annapolis have hampered private sector job growth to put all Marylanders in these unenviable rankings need to change to bring businesses back to this state and city. Having only one of the Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Baltimore is disgraceful (and they are moving soon).
