Maryland has a fiscal crisis with a huge deficit looming despite the huge 2007 tax increase. But Tax and Spend Delegates Joseline Pena-Melnyk (D-21), Ben Barnes (D-21), and Barbara Frush (D-21), who voted for the tax increase, want to spend even more of the money we don't have on non-essential, non-state government frills instead of maintaining essential state services like education and public safety. How many more state employees will be laid off or furloughed to help buy votes for these delegates?
