Minimum Wage Vote is MD Dems Admission They Made Maryland an Expensive Place to Live
The House of Delegates passed, by a vote of 89-46, Governor O’Malley’s bill to raise the state’s minimum wage to $10.10 per hour
The Maryland Democrat’s argument for raising the minimum wage is that will allow lower income workers in their families to afford to live in Maryland.
That’s might nice of them, to tacitly admit that their policies made it so expensive to live here:
- 40 taxes/fee hikes removing $9.5 billion from the economy;
- Massive 85 percent gas tax increase;
- Toll increases;
- Regressive sales tax increase;
- Energy policies that increased electric rates 43 percent, and forces rate payers to subsidize rent seeking wind barons to the tune of $1.8 billion.
Just another day in the #Wellrunstate.
