State of Maryland Archives: on Budget & Economy


Rob Sobhani: Morally wrong to spend more than government takes in

It is morally wrong and irresponsible for our government to continue to spend more than it takes in. As individuals and families, we have to work within our budget, and so should our government. We must cut programs that don't work, but ensure that we don't leave people who need them without safety nets. I oppose "across the board cuts" because they too often destroy the very goals we are seeking to achieve. Every department's budget must be reviewed to maximize efficiencies.
