O’Malley says you are rich and need to be taxed more (and more! and some more!)

Just in case you missed it, but I don’t know how that could be with everyone buzzing about the Wall Street Journals editorial today—Maryland’s Son of Obama!

Here is how the WSJ begins (hat tip to the many who sent it):

Most states have improved their financial condition coming out of the recession and so new taxes are generally off the table this year. Then there’s Maryland. Here’s another case of a failed tax increase on “millionaires.”

Democratic Governor Martin O’Malley has acknowledged another $1.1 billion deficit for 2013 thanks to a $35.9 billion budget with about $400 million for new school construction, roads and transit. To close the budget gap and help plug a $16 billion unfunded liability in public-employee pensions, Mr. O’Malley is seeking to raise $180 million by reducing income-tax deductions and exemptions for those earning more than $100,000. This is Maryland’s new definition of “rich.”


You’ll also be happy to know that Mr. O’Malley is expected to run for President in 2016.

  1. Based on O’Malley running for President in 2016, we all need to start investing money in Pepto Bismol – because its sales will skyrocket after the entire state starts THROWING UP !!!!!!!!!!! It is truly a toss-up as to which one is the WORST excuse for a human being: Obama OR O’Malley.

    They both belong in a monster museum.

    • If you don’t want O’Malley in the White House, then work to defeat same-sex marriage in March and to ensure the referendum against in-state tuition passes in November. If O’Malley can’t deliver for these two key Democratic constituencies as the Governor of super-liberal Maryland, the party will look elsewhere.

  2. […] last week that the WSJ called O’Malley “son of Obama” in a critical editorial on the sorry state of Maryland’s financial situation.   Gov. O’Malley responded here […]
