Taxpayer Protection Caucus Chairman

Posted by David Keelan on Tuesday, December 12, 2006

Howard County’s own Delegate Warren Miller (R-Woodbine) will become the next chairman of this caucus succeeding outgoing State Delegate Herb McMillan (R-Annapolis).

The caucus is comprised of 24 members of the House of Delegates.

“Taxpayers in Maryland can be relieved that the fiscal leadership demonstrated by Delegate Herb McMillan on their behalf will be continued with Warren Miller chairing the house taxpayer protection caucus.” said Grover Norquist, president of ATR. “Under Delegate Warren Miller’s leadership, the caucus will continue to work and fight for Maryland families and businesses who deserve to keep more of their hard earned money.”

Warren Miller is a very good choice for this position in that his views are well aligned with the Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) with whom the caucus works very closely with. 

While opposing additional tax increases is important some tax increases are warranted and I expect that Warren will exercise appropriate judgement in this position and will lead these 24 delegates as an effective voting block in order to protect taxpayers of all stripes.

    David- with respect to this statement: “While opposing additional tax increases is important some tax increases are warranted and I expect that Warren will exercise appropriate judgment in this position and will lead these 24 delegates as an effective voting block in order to protect taxpayers of all stripes.”

    I agree with you that some tax increases may be warranted. However, according to this link, Warren has signed a pledge to “oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes.” See page 5 of the .pdf file. I am all about low taxes and small government, but signing a pledge like that seems a bit extreme to me.

  2. I understand that Warren signed the no new taxes pledge. My own opinion is that sometimes tax increases are necessary. Warren is a very intelligent person. He will do the right thing.
