Maryland Manages to Crap on Wal-Mart

This just in from the AP. The Democratic controlled Maryland Senate just overrided Republican Governors Veto of the so called "Wal-Mart" bill. This bill mandates that companies that have over 10,000 Maryland employees MUST spend at least 8% of there payroll on employee healthcare or pay the difference to the states medicaid fund. Labor unions and socialists oops I mean Democrats were estatic with such notable quotes as:
"The taxpayers are giving a health-care subsidy to the largest retailer on earth," argued Democratic Delegate Kumar Barve.

"Don't dump your employees that you refuse to insure into our Medicaid system," said the bill's sponsor, Sen. Gloria Lawlah.

The Republican House leader had this to say

But House Republican Leader George Edwards called the measure an unwarranted intrusion into private enterprise.

"If you don't want to work for Wal-Mart, no one's twisting your arms. Go somewhere else and work," Edwards said.

Let me interject my 2 cents to Wal-Mart Inc., close all your stores (Wal-Mart's and Sam's Clubs) in Maryland and go somewhere else where your wanted. Big business is obviously not needed in Maryland.
