Maybe they get it?
I was surprised to read this:
On every other measure, Fairfax residents and businesses pay lower taxes than their counterparts in Montgomery. The biggest gap is in income tax rates, especially at the top. We do not have the comparative tax burden between the two counties, but on the state level Maryland (ranked 4th in the nation by the Tax Foundation) far exceeds Virginia (ranked 18th). There is no way that Montgomery County, a high-tax county in a high-tax state, can compete with Fairfax on the basis of low taxes.
Emphasis mine, but isn’t this something that Maryland Republicans have been saying about Maryland vis-a-vis Virginia for some time now, even before Martin O’Malley’s historic and immoral tax increases?
Maybe, just maybe, Maryland’s liberal class is finally starting to understand the damage done by high, confiscatory taxation.
