Online Petition Telling Annapolis to Stay Home, Spend Less
ANNAPOLIS – Annapolis politicians decided to play petty political games instead of responsibly balancing the budget during the 2012 legislative session. The Maryland chapter of Americans for Prosperity, and it’s more than 38,000 members, are opposed to another special session that will increase spending and raise taxes on working class Marylanders. To help citizens send this message directly to the political hierarchy in Annapolis, AFP-Maryland has created a petition for them to sign at www.NoSpecialSession.com.
"During the legislative session, Annapolis politicians decided playing political games was more important than responsibly balancing our state budget – something working class Marylanders have to do every day," said AFP-Maryland State Director Dave Schwartz. "Now they want a special session to spend more money and pass new tax hikes. Our members oppose a special session and encourage Marylanders to sign the petition."
“Thousands of Marylanders, across all party affiliations, signed our ‘No Gas Tax’ petition to Governor O’Malley earlier this year," said AFP-Maryland Grassroots Director Nick Loffer. “We expect a similar bi-partisan coalition will want to tell political leaders that they need to stay home, spend less, and let working class families keep more of their hard earned money.”
