Md Legislature Out of Touch

Several months ago, the Maryland legislature passed a bill that would require large companies employing 10,000 or more people to contribute 8% of their payroll to pay for employee health care costs OR pay a hefty tax to the State of Maryland. This bill unfairly singled Wal-Mart out in the state since it was the only company to fit this criteria.

Fortunately, Ronald Reagan - the man, the myth, the legend, came out to set Maryland straight. A federal judge in Baltimore, who Reagan appointed back in 1985 struck down the Maryland bill "saying federal rules don't allow states to spell out how companies allocate benefits."

That's what I've been saying from the beginning, and I'm glad to see that with exception to Ehrlich, who vetoed this piece of shit legislation, that the rest of the Maryland State Legislature was just proven to be out of touch not only with the businesses in the State of Maryland, but will federal laws that have been on the books for over 31 years.
