9/26 State Revenue and Taxes

If you've watched the local news or read the papers in the past week you've, no doubt, seen Governor O'Malley at kitchen tables to discuss his plan to restructure state income tax. Last week the governor climbed to a rooftop to discuss his vow to close corporate loopholes which have allowed large companies to avoid paying millions in local and state taxes. While Maryland is one of the wealthiest states, it's facing a looming fiscal crisis. Will making businesses pay more in taxes help the state's revenue? Marc and his guests will debate the issue of whether businesses pay their fair share of taxes.                                                                                                                                      -Marcus
