OPINION: Larry Hogan Continues to Lie For Political Gain

On January 12th, both the Baltimore Sun and the Washington Post ran pieces on Larry Hogan’s proposal to use the state’s budget surplus to “Aid Retirees, Low Earners, Businesses” says the Maryland Reporter.Com. “Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is proposing spending a chunk of Maryland’s budget surplus on a series of tax cuts for retirees, the state’s lowest earners and manufacturers that he hopes the Democrat-controlled Maryland General Assembly will agree to pass during the upcoming legislative session.

Hogan touted the proposal as “the largest tax cut package in state history” at a news conference Tuesday at the State House in Annapolis but released only broad details of the plan and did not provide an annual breakdown of how much revenue the breaks would cost the state.”

But, as usual, with this guy, you must watch his left hand while his right hand is performing his political sleight of hand. The headlines look good – Aid Retirees –

I happen to be one, a retired Army Officer who never served a single day of my 23 years in the State of Maryland. Hogan’s proposal is to eliminate 100% of the tax on retirees’ pensions. I like that —But the legislature has no problem taxing my Army pension. Hogan tried at least two time before and failed, as he will again, because this legislature is not about to give up that revenue. … the state’s lowest earners and manufacturers … again looks good, but the legislature is not about to change its stripes.

News Flash, Larry! HOPE is not a method.  So … hope[ing] the Democrat-controlled Maryland General Assembly will agree to pass during the upcoming legislative session …  hoping is not how it gets done. And certainly not for a lame duck Republican.

The legislature may pass some tax relief, after the 2022 election, to ensure a Democrat Governor gets the credit.

But Larry is done – today’s email says the following:

Dear Friend, Maryland’s legislative session begins at noon today, and we need your help. We are fighting to pass the largest tax cut in Maryland history, including eliminating 100% of retirement taxes, as well as passing vital bills to address the violent crime crisis. This is our last chance to raise the resources we need to fight these critical battles for the next 90 days. Will you rush a contribution to Change Maryland Action Fund immediately?”

I believe that Larry Hogan was elected by the people of Maryland to work on issues such as these – not “HOPE”, but actually work with the legislature to make change happen. He gets a salary, $180,000 from the State. His staff is well compensated to “lobby” the legislature for the bipartisan action that he is seeking. So, WHY does he need me to send money to the Change Maryland Action Fund?

If he plans to run for President or Senator, can Larry be honest with us for once? Larry needs to come clean with the people of Maryland. It’s downright mean to get the expectations of retirees and others up, then ask them for money so he can take action when he knows the inevitable outcome.

His chances, as a lame duck governor, of changing anything this upcoming legislative session, have the same percentages of survival as does a snowball in hell. Larry, stop the grift!
