Boycott Another Special Session in Annapolis to Give A Tax Cut to Millionaires

Demand tax fairness!  

Just two months after calling "Special Session" of the Maryland General Assembly to pass a massive tax increase on working Marylanders, state lawmakers want to come back to Annapolis for another "Special Session" to hand a 15% tax cut to millionaire casino operators at the expense of Maryland's Education Trust Fund (ETF).  The ETF was set up in 2008 by Maryland VOTERS who approved slots in the state "for the primary purpose of providing funds for public education".  Remember!

Read about MGM's partner in Macau, China and their connection to organized crime.  See the NJ Casino Control Commission's report: http://www.state.nj.us/casinos/home/info/docs/MGM/dge_%20report_redacted.pdf

CALL your state lawmakers today and urge them to Boycott a Special Session at: 301-841-3000

No tax increase for Maryland's 99% in May, followed by a tax cut for the Maryland's 1% millionaires in August!

Outlaw gambling benefits to Members of the Maryland General Assembly!  Outlaw casino contracts and liquor distributorships to delegates and senators after they leave public office!

540,000 Notices of Intent to Foreclose have gone out in Maryland since April 2008:

          -133,152 Notices in Prince George's County in May 2012 alone!

           -72,601 Notices in Baltimore City in May 2012!

           -60,333 Notice in Montgomery County in May 2012!

Yet, Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker, Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings and Montgomery County Executive Ike Leggett testified in favor of income tax increases on working Marylanders and a gas tax increase, but are now all lobbying lawmakers around the state to support a TAX CUT for millionaire casino operators.  I absolutely do not mind paying my fair share. But, this is fundamentally unfair to hardworking Marylanders!

CALL YOUR STATE LEADERS TODAY AND TELL THEM TO BOYCOTT ANOTHER  SPECIAL SESSION IN ANNAPOLIS FOR CASINO MILLIONAIRES:  410-841-3000

Boycott A Special Session in Annapolis

We demand tax fairness! Just two months after calling a special session in Annapolis to pass a massive tax increase on working Marylanders, you now want to come back to Annapolis to hand a 15% tax cut to millionaire casino operators at the expense of Maryland's Education Trust Fund (ETF). That is unfair!

In 2008, Maryland VOTERS approved slots in the state "for the primary purpose of providing funds for public education." Remember! We want you to honor our vote and to keep your promise!

No tax cut for millionaire casino operators!
Outlaw casino contracts and liquor distributorships to delegates and senators after they leave public office!
