From the Washington Post of March 11, 2011, a letter from Gino Renne, president of United Food & Commercial Workers Union Local 1994, Montgomery County Municipal and County Government Employees Organization:
“The problem is a revenue problem. The poor, the unemployed, the homeless — they’ve all paid more than their fair share.
“We know who they are. The country clubs that pay taxes on less than one-tenth the value of their land; businesses such as Live Nation, which is enjoying millions of dollars in giveaways to build a rock-and-roll venue. There are others. We need to tax those who can afford it more and stop giving them handouts they don’t need.”
