Maryland has a spending problem, not a revenue problem

March 26, 2012

Maryland revenues have steadily increased over the last four years, yet Gov.Martin 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. He's also proposing a 6 percent sales tax on gas while prices at the pump are topping $3.75 a gallon. 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!

F. Dupree, Aberdeen
