Not by chance but by choice…

  • It is not by chance but by choice that Governor O’Malley pushed through the largest tax increase in Maryland’s history.
  • It is not by chance but by choice that by 2012 Maryland will have lost an estimated 8,334 jobs from the sales tax increase alone. 
  • It is not by chance but by choice that Governor O’Malley has furloughed State Employees three times while still maintaining his taxpayer-funded chef at his taxpayer-funded residence.
  • It is not by chance but by choice that Governor O’Malley is seeking the repeal of the Maryland-mined Coal Tax Credit – jeopardizing more than 1,000 Maryland jobs in coal, trucking, and other related industries.
  • It is not by chance but by choice that Governor O’Malley refused to implement sex offender laws putting our communities and our children at greater risk.
  • It is not by chance but by choice that Governor O’Malley extended unemployment benefits to part-time employees at the same time unemployment rates were nearing historic highs.  This decimated the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund – now employers are facing a tripling of their insurance premiums at a time when they are already reducing their workforce to stay afloat.
  • It is not by chance but by choice that the O’Malley administration’s stormwater management regulations go so far beyond the legislative intent that they will eliminate any growth in new construction jobs.
  • It is not by chance but by choice that Governor O’Malley has increased total spending by $3 billion over the last four year – the same amount as our projected deficit.
  • It is not by chance but by choice that Governor O’Malley used the regulatory billy club of the Public Service Commission to threaten the potential building of Calvert Cliffs III – jeopardizing 4,000 long term construction jobs and hundreds of high paying permanent jobs.
  • It is not by chance but by choice that Governor O’Malley accepted billions of stimulus dollars committing Maryland to obligations it can’t afford and leaving the bill for our children to pay.
