How about cutting Md. spending?

Is it just me or do Maryland leaders want to raise another tax or another fee almost every day? They never seem to discuss cutting spending. The budget committees should do their job for a change. Start by de-funding all the useless appointed political cronies like those who work in economic development.

Odd how they can always find money for the emperor's bloated staff, lavish state pensions, new cars and expense accounts yet never enough money for roads or the Chesapeake Bay.

Curb the spending!
