The ad attacks Mr. Hogan on his support for lowering taxes on business. This is a very strange attack considering business tax reform would make Maryland far more competitive with our neighboring states. The past seven years under Mr. Brown's leadership has been tough for Marylanders with over 10,000 businesses and 30,000 individuals leaving our state. Now more then ever, we need leaders who support lowering taxes, not raising them. Following the O'Malley/Brown administration's decision to increase taxes over 40 consecutive times, Mr. Hogan's view on lowering taxes is very refreshing.
