Issue Position: Vehicle Miles Tax

Jan. 1, 2014

How can we vote for people who propose taxes like the Vehicle Miles Traveled Tax? VMT tax That tax is regressive! It hurts people who can afford it least. It hurts a person who gets a new job and cannot afford to take it because it is further away than the current job. It hurts the grandmother whose grandchildren live 25 miles away and to go pick them up and take them home is a hundred miles for the round trip. It hurts the family who has to travel to another state to see a mother or brother or sister. It hurts when … It is just a plain hurtful idea!We already pay too much tax on miles travelled when we buy gas in this state. What is the purpose of this tax? It sounds like a dictatorial way to limit travel, to crowd people together. Is this America?

Issue Position: Taxes and Economic Growth

Jan. 1, 2014

The two most important issues to voters in District 14 Maryland politicians need to focus on the growth consequences of taxes. Tax proposals should be evaluated according to many criteria, among them simplicity, enforceability, and fairness, but growth should be the most important consideration. Marylanders need a tax code with rates to maximize the growth rate--not to maximize the revenue rate. Democrat Comptroller Peter Franchot warned in 2013 that the Maryland economy remained "exceedingly fragile and uncertain," and urged his fellow Democrats to "resist creating any additional unpredictability for Maryland consumers and small businesses." Yet, during the 2014 Legislative Session, Democrat politicians increased the budget by $2 BILLION and voted down GOP proposals to reduce the personal and the corporate income tax rates. · No wonder people want to leave the state. A recent national Gallup Poll found that 47% of Maryland residents would leave the state if they were able. Gallup said, "The cost of living is a greater relative factor for residents in Connecticut and New York, while taxes are a uniquely important factor in New York, Illinois, and Maryland." According to Gallup, "Nevada, Illinois, Maryland, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, and Connecticut all appear particularly vulnerable to losing population in the coming few years." · No wonder businesses aren't attracted to the state. Year after year magazines such as Chief Executive rank Maryland as one of the Worst States for Business due to taxes and regulations. The report also noted domestic migration data ranking Maryland 40th in the nation with a net out migration in 2013 of 8,525 people. · No wonder seniors don't want to retire in Maryland. Year after year financial sites such as Bankrate.com and Forbes (Where Not to Die List) rank Maryland as one of the Worst States for Retirees, primarily because of the high cost of living and taxes. Maryland remains one of only 19 states with an Estate Tax and one of only 2 states that also assesses a separate inheritance tax.
