One Response

  1. Is the tax package fair and progressive?
    Does the slots scheme have any redeeming social value?

    The only Special Session accomplishment of which I am sure is this: Gov. Martin O’Malley exercised leadership and succeeded in breaking state government gridlock.

    A “can-do” attitude is long overdue in Maryland. — Bernie
