Long Shot Candidate O'Malley Responsible For $9.5 Billion In Tax Hikes Since Taking Office

 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley keynoting the New Hampshire Democrats annual dinner.

 

"Its sad that the only speaker New Hampshire Democrats could attract for their annual dinner is a desperate, self promoting, third tier presidential hopeful with a disastrous tax-and-spend record.

 

"During his abysmal terms in office, Governor Martin O'Malley implemented crushing new regulations, job-killing policies and $9.5 billion in new taxes. He even raised his state income tax and punished working families with a disastrous gas tax hike.

 

"By honoring a liberal, income tax supporting extremist at their annual dinner, Democrats have proven that they are widely out of step with New Hampshire's fiscally responsible values. Martin O'Malley's disastrous jobs record and reckless agenda reminds Granite Staters that it's important to elect a fiscally responsible Republican governor in 2014 who will preserve the New Hampshire Advantage."
