"Maryland punishes small businesses. With marginal tax rates for sole proprietorships and S-corporations the 7th highest nationally and the highest among all neighboring states in the region, the O'Malley-Brown Administration can take credit for driving away small businesses. Our state has lost small businesses at rates that are among the highest in the region under their term in office and high taxes are the reason."
