Morgan's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Economic Growth and Reducing Your Tax Burden
Maryland Democrats have increased state spending by 25%, more than $10 billion in additional state spending in just the past seven years. How do we pay for this you ask? Well, with over 70+ taxes and fee increases enacted, Maryland’s citizens and businesses paid over $8 billion in higher taxes, fees and tolls per year from FY 2008-2013.
A high tax burden stifles growth, weakens the economy and puts more people out of work. Our economy works best when individuals have more of their hard-earned income to spend, and businesses have money to invest.
Government does not create jobs, businesses do. Businesses exist to make a profit. If that becomes too difficult in Maryland, they will simply pack up shop and move to a place that is more beneficial to them.
