The following services are maintained, or were built, at least 50%, and in some cases 100%, using general State of MD revenue, due to Baltimore City collecting insufficient tax revenue (as pointed out by Blair Lee in his syndicated news column "My Maryland")

Baltimore City public schools

Baltimore City correctional center/ prison

Baltimore Convention Center

Baltimore metro/ subway system

Baltimore light-rail system

Orioles stadium

Ravens stadium

BWI Airport

It's no wonder that many in Western MD want to secede from the state (40% in the case of Garrett County residents polled)

By making CC free, you create more demand for the "product". When you do that, the laws of supply and demand kick in and ultimately make the product more expensive.

So now you actually have to pump even more money into the system, because you will need more classroom space, more teachers/professors, more administrators, more public areas like student union facilities, etc. And what happens if you don't make the necessary improvements to satisfy the greater demand? The value of the education you would receive is damaged, and the value of the degree is less valuable, the credits becoming less transferrable to anywhere other than the state colleges and universities, and if they accept the less valuable credits, eventually the value of those 4 year degrees becomes injured.

It has already been shown that when more people get college degrees, the value of those degrees diminishes, and people have to continue in higher education to get a Major or PHD in order to stand out. This is how our higher education has become a business.

Unintended consequences!

There's this really cool thing called google that exists today where one can look up facts provided by the State of Maryland's Legislative Services agency when it comes to state aid for each county:

http://dls.state.md.us/data/polanasu...m-combined.pdf

Among the findings - Baltimore City is no longer the top receiving jurisdiction of state aid - that title now goes to Prince George's County. Furthermore, of the top 5 most populated jurisdictions in Maryland, only Baltimore City experienced a decline in the amount of state aid for fiscal year 2018.

This is probably due to the fact that the city lost 6700 residents, while MoCo, HoCo, Anne Arundel, Baltimore County saw gains (7K for MoCo, 4500 each for HoCo and Arundel).

What's the per capita number?

You want to pay the same tax rate that New Yorkers pay? I know I don't and I am probably in the majority for that opinion.

Those were estimates - not official census data.

Okay, the entire state of Tennessee. Happy? Or care to try and move the bar again?
