Will some one please explain to the lawmakers in my home state simple math?
In these lawmakers eyes (Maryland is my home) taxing the rich more is better then taxing the middle class. What they fail to understand is when you take x amount from someone they start looking at their alternatives. In this case we lost some of our rich to our neighboring states. So instead of taking a little from everyone now they are taking more from less and less. Face it why not move to West Virginia, Delaware or Virginia ? Its close enough to see your friends, close to work and less taxes. Its win-win for the State they move too and the person.
