Maryland's Millionaire Tax Dodgers

And you're BOASTING about it? Really? After being asked to pay their fair share:
One-third of the millionaires have disappeared from Maryland tax rolls. In 2008 roughly 3,000 million-dollar income tax returns were filed by the end of April. This year there were 2,000, which the state comptroller's office concedes is a "substantial decline." On those missing returns, the government collects 6.25% of nothing.
If the underlying contention of such notions is accurate, the writer is suggesting that because the wealthiest were required to pay their fair share, THEY DODGED THEIR LEGAL OBLIGATION.

And this tax dodging is somehow both predictable and laudable?!

Somebody needs to go look up the term Fail Whale as pop cultural indictment of all things moronic and laughable.
