Is Maryland the next California?

Courtesy of Dave Schwartz and the Daily Caller.   Juicy part:

It wasn’t always this way for the Free State. O’Malley’s predecessor, Governor Bob Ehrlich (R-MD), was a fiscal conservative. Ehrlich consistently defeated the liberal legislature’s tax-hike proposals, reduced the overall size of government by 10% and even left a $1 billion surplus in 2007. However, the downward spiral began shortly after O’Malley’s swearing-in.

Some states never learn.

  2. Amazing that they can never find cuts, only increases.

    • We have a very high illegal population here, and it takes a lot of money to court their votes. And yes, in Takoma Park, MD, illegals can register to vote for local issues.
