State of Maryland Archives: on Budget & Economy


Martin O`Malley: Tax reductions & regulatory reforms to help job creators

Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for us to listen to Maryland's hard working taxpayers and our job creators. The people of Maryland simply cannot afford for us to continue on the same path of more spending, more borrowing, more taxes, and politics as usual. It is time for a new direction for Maryland. Our administration will work to enact the necessary budgets, tax reductions, regulatory reforms, and legislation that is necessary, to ensure that we turn our economy around.

Rob Sobhani: Morally wrong to spend more than government takes in

It is morally wrong and irresponsible for our government to continue to spend more than it takes in. As individuals and families, we have to work within our budget, and so should our government. We must cut programs that don't work, but ensure that we don't leave people who need them without safety nets. I oppose "across the board cuts" because they too often destroy the very goals we are seeking to achieve. Every department's budget must be reviewed to maximize efficiencies.
