O’Malley imposed all these taxes on Maryland and oh yeah, he taxed the rain

In the state of Maryland, Democrats outnumber Republicans something like 3 to 1. However, Martin O’Malley policies, taxes, etc… managed to get the current Republican (Larry Hogan) governor elected. Even the Democrats here know how horrible he is. Look at the condition in which he left Baltimore as mayor. Look at the businesses that have abandoned this state because of regulation and taxation as Governor. That’s just the start! A ghastly candidate if there ever was one.

Tired yet? He also passed legislation to give illegals drivers licenses and in-state college tuition. He’s all for an illegal revolution.

Quoted from his announcement speech today:

“Understanding precedes action, and we must understand that what happened to our economy…did not happen by chance. Powerful, wealthy, special interests here at home have used our government to create in our own country an economy that is leaving a majority of our people behind.”

Oh really? Then how does it explain the many taxes he imposed on middle-income families in Maryland that squeezed their pocket books, including the infamous “rain tax” among other things? When democrats start taxing the rain, is that their way of saying: I’m even too lazy to produce anything to tax, so I’m going to start taxing something that has been around for millions of years

It’s quite telling that a blue state like Maryland elected a Republican as their governor last November – that’s all you need to know about O’Malley’s abhorrent record.
