ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland lawmakers will receive a 15.7 percent pay raise over the next four years.
Sources report that a salary commission recommended the increase, which will take effect automatically. A Republican resolution to stop the pay hikes is going nowhere.

MD and the rest of the area around DC has NOT experienced any recession; in fact they have been in a boom economy. Thus it is no surprise that they want to pay their parasites more (given that they are almost all parasites themselves). This is one case where they actually CAN afford a tax hike.
Why would they vote NOT to increase their pay?
The Maryland economic situation must be very, very good!
So much so they never want to get rid of their lawmakers.
Another reason to begin planning to move out of the state.
The one good thing I can say about Maryland is that they have one of the coolest state flags in the Union.
We can assume that is the REAL rate of inflation.
“Sources report that a salary commission recommended the increase, which will take effect automatically.”
If this meeting was done in secret or without the proper public notifications, which is common SOP by rat fascist legislators, any citizen of Maryland may file a lawsuit in the state district court to stop this. Maryland, like other states, is legally obligated to follow the state’s Open Meetings law.
This law allows citizens to:
1. File a lawsuit in state court.
2. Seek personal damages from the lawmakers who passed the legislation.
3. Throw the lawmakers in jail.
4. Demand that the state pay for all legal expenses, including hiring an attorney and paying all court costs.
You conservatives wanted a tool to fight back against democrat pigs, here it is. Get to work Maryland patriots and sue these Nazi SOBs.
Yes we have been extremely lucky to not have to deal with the recession. You should see all the help wanted signs around. It is a crime that Maryland is so financially stable while other states can’t seem to get jobs for their folks. However, with great economy and schools, you are going to pay. So we do pay about 10 percent to the state through payroll deductions. Some people without jobs really should relocate especially conservatives so that we can make Maryland a red state again as it was in 1984.
Then reduce my taxes by 15 %. That would almost be like a raise...
You have no idea!
Be on the lookout as we approach 2016 as our Grand Poobah, the Guv, Michael O'Malley (Owe'Malley) has been salivating for a "big white house" just west of here for some time now.
“...Some people without jobs really should relocate especially conservatives so that we can make Maryland a red state again as it was in 1984....”
The majority of jobs in Maryland are from government civil “service” employees at the federal, state and local levels; contractors working at or servicing those government agencies; some military (Naval Academy, NSA, Andrews AFB, Walter Reed, etc.); and service workers support them all.
So Maryland is living in large measure off of the taxpayer’s dime”. And it will NEVER be a red state again. Most of the conservatives I know can’t wait until they can leave the state for a better environment to escape their Progressive Ruling Elite overlords with all their taxation.
Texas Governor Rick Perry is inviting Marylanders to move to Texas.
I had just talked to my brother Michael and my wires got crossed! lol
I would give them a 15 percent pay CUT, effective immediately.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
He might want to consider not doing that; all the locusts might take him up on his offer.
“It’s not that easy to ruin a state! We should be paid more!”
I vote to have a 15% decrease in state taxes and fees.
NO SOUP FOR YOU!
