ANNAPOLIS – This morning, Republicans sent Martin O’Malley a message that they are tired of the taxes, tired of the spending, and tired of a government that is spiraling out of control. A sign placed at Government House, residence to Martin O’Malley said, “EVICTION NOTICE: Marylanders are taking their state back and it’s time for you and your Democratic pals to leave Annapolis. We’ve had enough of your tax and spend policies, and we’re tired of you driving our jobs away.”
David Ferguson, Executive Director of the Maryland Republican Party, said, “The Democratic leadership said they’ve already reached a compromise to plunder and pillage the people’s paychecks. Next week they’ll come to Annapolis to tell Marylanders just how much more they’ll steal. It’s too bad the hardworking taxpayers didn’t have a seat at their table.”
He continued, “This Special Session is a great opportunity for Marylanders to see the difference between Democratic mismanagement and Republican leadership. It is a shame the Democrats won’t consider the Republicans’ alternative budget solution introduced this session. It doesn’t raise taxes, swell spending, or shift teacher pensions to local governments.”
Ferguson concluded, “We're putting Annapolis on notice: Martin O’Malley should take off his blinders, quit focusing on the White House, and start leading before his government spirals further out of control.”
Taxpayers from across Maryland will be protesting Martin O’Malley’s tax hikes on Monday, May 14, 2012 from 7:00-9:00 pm at Lawyers Mall in Annapolis. For more information, please call the Maryland Republican Party headquarters at 410-263-2125.
