More Egg on Their Face

Remember when the Maryland Democratic Party tried that snarky–and dishonest–shot at Mary Kane for wishing Maryland were more like Texas in regards to business and tax policy?

Well here’s more egg on their face.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 214,000 net new jobs were created in the United States from August 2009 to August 2010. Texas created 119,000 jobs during the same period. If every state in the country had performed as well, we’d have created about 1.5 million jobs nationally during the past year, and maybe “stimulus” wouldn’t be such a dirty word.

What does Austin know that Washington doesn’t? At its simplest: Don’t overtax and -spend, keep regulations to a minimum, avoid letting unions and trial lawyers run riot, and display an enormous neon sign saying, “Open for Business.”

Add Martin O’Malley and his merry band of technocrats in Annapolis to that list of what Washington doesn’t know.
