Democrats in Annapolis have pushed through four big increases that have raised taxes by at least 18 percent during the past five years, even as many Marylanders remain unemployed or underemployed or have had to settle for lower-paying jobs that bring home smaller paychecks.

Elections have consequences, and if people are dissatisfied with Mr. O'Malley they should vote his fellow Democrats out of office.
