That’s the theme of this year’s General Assembly session when it comes to contentious possible solutions to the fiscal mess Maryland – like all other states – finds itself in.

The theme bothers Republicans. They worry that higher taxes might be pushed through Annapolis next year by a Democratic majority fretful about making such moves before November’s elections.

“They are trying to use smoke and mirrors and Band-Aids to get through this year,” said Senate Minority Leader Allan H. Kittleman, a Howard County Republican. “Next year,” he predicted, “they will have to have the highest tax increase in the history of Maryland.”
