Well good old Martin O’Malley the Governor of the Peoples Republic of Maryland, had a very brief moment of honesty last nigh at the DNC where he actually answered the question of whether or not the average American is better off now than 4 years ago. His answer was No…
Of course now he is walking that back. But we all know his first answer was the correct one. Maryland being a Democrat run state with total Democrat party rule, it is out of control. We spend like the country is not in a
Since 2007 this asshat and the dumocrats in charge of Maryland have raised taxes and fees in excess of 20 times. All while not cutting a dime of spending in the state. On top of that during a deep double dip recession these clowns enact a millionaire tax. That tax caused Millionaires to leave the state of MD in droves. Because why should people with the means to escape that tax stay and pay more of their income to a soon to be failed state*. That tax cost the state of MD 1.7 billion dollars in tax revenues, go party of smart power.
This year the dumocrats have passed a tax increase on hundred thousand-airs. Which will hit my family in the chin as we are DINCs.
They also wanted to raise sales tax to 7% from the 6% it is currently and the 5% it was in 2008. ALL WHILE NOT CUTTING SPENDING. This is one more reason whenever I can I will purchase goods over the internet where they are not getting taxed. In fact for my next big ticket purchase I can buy it at a discount due to my employer at the local Apple store. I will in fact be buying it via the Internet. It will cost me 50 bucks more that way, but not a red cent will go to Maryland via sales taxes. And that makes me very happy.
Lets not even talk about the Scameras that a lot of the counties have started putting in. They lower the speed limits and put in lots of new “school zones” so they can put in more cameras. Fortunately my county has not yet allowed the Scameras to be installed. I already have several very nice photos of my car that Prince Georges county has mailed me.
Finally MD undertaking voting district gerrymandering that shames anything that the Democrats are complaining about in Texas, but since it is in Democrat controlled Maryland it is not news. At least that is going to go on the ballet in november, not that the drones in MD will be smart enough to vote it down.
Marylanders are FAR FAR worse off now than when O’Malley took over.
So for the love of all that is holy don’t believe a word that comes out of that asshat’s mouth over the next week.
