  1. The Republican criticism of increasing the corporate income tax and closing corporate tax loopholes is that Maryland might lose business or development to Virginia. So what’s the problem with that?

    Maryland is bracing for a burst of BRAC-related growth and development. Way more development than our schools, roads and environment can handle is coming. It would not be a bad thing if some development detoured to another state. But Maryland is so attractive in so many ways that I doubt that will happen. Just my opinion.

    Republicans, and some Democrats, fret that rich people might flee the state to avoid a slightly progressive personal income tax. That is laughable paranoia. Rich people live in Chevy Chase, Roland Park, and Potomac because those are wonderful places. People live on the horse farms of the Western Shore and the waterfront estates of the Eastern Shore because that is a grand lifestyle. Few people are so miserly that they will abandon their home in paradise to avoid a small tax increase. Just my opinion. –Bernie
