    Does it really matter as Maryland tax payers continue to leave the state for greener less taxed pastures? I am most certain none of these politicians are talking about cutting the budget or making Md more affordable place to live. The wealthiest and retirees continue to head south and the state stagnates. 8,000 businesses alone left the state last year, 6,000 tax from moco – I guess really doesn’t matter anymore – best to move on.
