O'Malley wants to waste our money on offshore wind

He has spent all of Maryland's taxpayer dollars and then some since being elected, and now he wants to spend even more on wind power from the ocean, despite having been elected in part on a campaign promise to reduce spending ("O'Malley readies new offshore wind bid," Jan. 12)

Instead, he has increased taxes and fees and increased spending. Doesn't the governor read the news stories about the billions of tax dollars being wasted on green companies that have gone bankrupt?

Why should ratepayers' dollars be used to support private companies when our government let most American steel companies go out of business? If a company has a good product they should be able to get backing from private investors.
