    There are almost 5000 people working for the state of Maryland that make over $100,000 maybe they could take a cut in pay

    Great idea! If there are actually 5000 people working for the State of Maryland and they rejected 10% of their pay to the benefit of Marylanders that would be a credit of more than 50,000,000.00 DOLLARS. What a Boost to the economy of Maryland! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
