Once again our beloved governor is crowing about his responsible spending cuts while in office.
In a recent opinion piece for The Sun, he wrote that over the last six years "Maryland has taken a balanced approach when it comes to fiscal policy — making responsible cuts to spending while prioritizing investments in jobs, opportunity, and a stronger middle class" ("Replace the sequester before it's too late," April 4).
Since the budget has gone from $27 billion to more than $36 billion since 2007, when Mr. O'Malley took office, I would like to know just what cuts the governor has actually made. Where's the beef?
How can one crow about spending cuts when the budget has risen almost $10 billion over the last seven years?
