Our state elected officials continue to amaze me — and not in as good way.

Our legislature had 90 days to do its work, its most important task being the budget. Ninety days was not long enough to take a hard look at programs and expenses and make the difficult choices necessary to cut spending and balance our budget? Now, we the taxpayers will foot the bill for a special session because our elected officials couldn't do their job?

Only in government. Let's take the doomsday budget. This state needs cuts in spending, not new sources of revenue. The people are speaking, but no one is listening in Annapolis.
