So, when Robert Erlich left office as the governor of Maryland in 2007 he turned over a budgetary surplus to incoming governor, Marty O’Malley. Within six months, O’Malley had spent the surplus (mostly on salaries for folks who had helped him get in office) and raised taxes on working Marylanders. And it’s been a spree ever since. I could stand it for three years and I beat feet across the West Virginia State line. The only thing worth going to Maryland for was because gas was cheaper there than West Virginia – well, until O’Malley jacked up the gas tax. Now that they’ve also passed their gun ban, I can’t even go to the range in Maryland anymore.
But, looking for more revenue, the hungry beast, O’Malley is going after homeowners and taxing them for the amount of rain that falls on their property. From Breitbart;
The tax, mandated by the EPA and enforced locally, will be calculated “through satellite surveillance of your property,” the statement claims.
Bongino blasts “out of touch political aristocrats in Maryland will do anything to diminish your economic liberty and starve your wallet while padding theirs.”
According to the conservative organization Change Maryland, the rain tax will cost Marylanders about $300 million annually.
So, someone tell me why they reelected this spastic libtard?
