The Free Lunch Budget
David Lublin at Maryland Politics Watch posts a letter from fourteen “progressive” (i.e. far left) state senators to Governor O’Malley demanding that your taxes be raised to fund lots of things that they like.
However, we are concerned that too much of the recent debate has focused on the needs of the government, rather than on the needs and aspirations of our people. The budget is a moral document that reflects our community’s priorities and values. Our constituents want fiscal policies that will protect our quality of life and shape a decent future for all of our children and grandchildren.
Apparently rewarding hard work and entrepreneurship are not among the moral values that this bunch think are worth emphasizing in the budget. Global warming, class warfare, and a stunning ignorance of economics are presented front and center.
