Lt. Gov. Brown’s “efficiency plan” calls for eliminating state employees

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Despite eight years of record tax increases and spending as Lt. Governor, Anthony Brown claims he will cut waste from the state budget as governor—but his estimate of anticipated savings would require massive eliminations of state employment positions.

In Brown’s “Government Efficiency Plan,” he cites cost-saving measures by Connecticut as a roadmap for Maryland to reduce wasteful spending. That plan would call for cost savings from eliminating state employees; the bulk of Connecticut’s plan is based on this measure.

“The treatment of state employees under Anthony Brown has been disgraceful,” said Larry Hogan. “Mandatory furloughs and a lack of cost of living pay increases, combined with 40 consecutive tax hikes has made it nearly impossible for many state employees to survive. Meanwhile, the Lt. Governor and his boss Martin O’Malley were just given yet another raise thanks to the inaction of the state legislature.”

It is fuzzy math for Brown to say he 'cut' the budget the past 8 years by $9 Billion dollars.
The so called cuts are from "PROPOSED INCREASES IN SPENDING" not actual cuts.
This thinking is the same as me saying I wanted to buy a $20 million yacht but decided not to so I "saved" $20 million.

He forgot to mention the $200,000,000.00 he wasted in the failed Maryland Health Exchange. This was his sole responsibility as Lt. Gov. and he totally blew it. Now he wants a promotion?

Another Communist Obama Clone. With the same motto of "Do As I Say, Not As I Do". Rotten and Crooked to the Core. Maryland Voters Do Not Fall For His Words, But Judge By His Actions in the Past. I bring the Truth to Your Ears as Plain as A-B-C

LOL! If he wanted to eliminate State workers' jobs, he and Omallet would be halfway through it by now.

In other words, he's lying in order to get votes.

Children are our future?

What kind of mind control flap is that? What do you mean?

Children have a future - yes.

We have a future - yes.

Children are not "our future".
Stop with the bullshtie already.

Say what you mean for crying out loud.

How about, "I care about children and want them to have food".

On the State and local level (and national), I do think some positions need to be eliminated... yet retain the employee and move/train them in areas that lack efficiency. Not that ANY government agency is efficient... but that's to be expected when you don't have to show a profit.
