Income Inequality Increased Under Martin O’Malley
So Governor O’Malley wants to address “income inequality.” He should look in the mirror. From my Baltimoresun.com piece.
Here in Democratically controlled Maryland, who is the villain?
Governor O’Malley would likely blame George W. Bush. Here, six years into the Obama presidency, he’s still calling it the “Bush recession.” In fact, all Governor O’Malley needs to do to find the enemy is look in a mirror.
According to data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, as compiled by the Washington Post, Maryland’s middle class has shrunk significantly during the O’Malley era. A Post graphic shows that the number of households earning between $25,000 and $100,000 a year shrunk by nearly 38,000 between the 2007-2009 three-year period and 2010-2012.
