01/14/08 O’Malley and Annapolis

We're on the air right now with Andy Green from The Sun, Tom LoBianco from The Washington Times, and Erin Sullivan from City Paper... talking about the beginning of the legislative session, what to expect in the next 3 months, and, so far, the public's perception of O'Malley.  Yesterday, The Sun published a poll showing a low approval rating for O'Malley, mainly because of the tax increases approved in the special session last fall, it seems. What are your thoughts on O'Malley and the new tax increases?  How do you perceive yourself as being effected by the new tax plan?  Is a 1 percent sales tax increase something to complain about?  How about a 1.25% corporate tax increase? Poll: Do you approve or disapprove of the job Martin O'Malley has done as governor so far? -Justin
