Welcome to Tampa Martin O’Malley
Martin O’Malley is down in Tampa to campaign against Mitt Romney. The contrast of Maryland’s jobs record with other states such as Virginia, makes an apt comparison for this election.
While other states held the line on increased spending and taxes and are in better shape, Maryland in lagging on job creation. Instead of encouraging private job growth, O’Malley uses the legislative special sessions to cut taxes for casino operators, while raising taxes for the middle class.
