“Used To Be From Maryland”
From the RNC Convention in Tampa
At a large multi-delegation party Sunday night at the Republican Convention in Tampa, the most common greeting to Marylanders from attendees from Virginia, Delaware, Florida and even DC has been, “I used to be from Maryland, but I left because…..” The rest usually involved a new job somewhere else or lower taxes.
On Monday morning, Sen. E.J. Pipkin summed up the phenomena. People elsewhere can look to Maryland to see the results of the Obama-O’Malley policies. More government in Maryland is producing fewer jobs than other states.
