Perry and like-minded Republican governors subscribe to the slash-and-burn economic philosophy — a belief that “less” will somehow become “more.” In Texas, he has implemented this vision with gusto, cutting taxes and slashing funding for critical middle-class priorities such as public schools, higher education, health care and infrastructure. The results? Texas ranks 49th in high school graduation, 10th in the rate of poverty and 50th in the percent of residents with even basic health insurance.-Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley in an op-ed in The Washington Post
When you grow tired of Maryland taxes squeezing every time out of your business, think Texas, where we created more jobs than all other states combined....Maybe it's time to move your business to Texas.-Texas Gov. Rick Perry in an ad running in Maryland
My administration has made Maryland a better place to do business by focusing on middle-class and sustainable jobs. In addition to being No. 1 in median income, the median wage for hourly workers in Maryland is $14.17 vs. $12.00 in Texas, which lags the national median of $12.80. And while Texas leads the nation in minimum-wage workers, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce ranks Maryland first in the nation in innovation and entrepreneurship, second in concentration of science, technology, engineering and math jobs and third for its “talent pipeline.”-Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley in an op-ed in The Washington Post
Washington (CNN) - If you needed another signal that Martin O'Malley has 2016 on his mind, then here you go: The Maryland governor announced Wednesday that he'll keynote a major Democratic Party dinner in New Hampshire.
"I want you to be the first to know that I will be joining you on November 16 in Manchester at the 2013 Jefferson Jackson Dinner," said O'Malley as he broke the news in an email to supporters and to Granite State Democrats.
