Corporate 'give away'? [Letter]

February 09, 2014

Only in Maryland can politicians get away with the double-speak of calling the slight lowering of one of the nation's highest corporate tax rates a "give away" ("Brown attacks Gansler for favoring corporate tax cut," Feb. 5).

Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown also calls lowering corporate taxes to a level that is still higher than most other states "a reckless corporate tax handout."

Maybe when the last corporation has left Maryland for another state with a more reasonable tax burden, he will realize the true meaning of "a corporate give away."
