Thomas DiLorenzo: Maryland?s war on consumers | The Examiner | Opinion | Washington Examiner

Government is in the business of catering primarily to well-organized special interests while spreading the costs of government (i.e., taxes) across the entire taxpaying population. Special interests are well-organized politically, whereas the general public is not, which is why the former group always prevails. Few state legislatures, moreover, are more egregious in pandering to special interests than Maryland?s.

A case in point is the state legislature?s recently passed “Wal-Mart bill,” which forces the company to spend more of its revenues on things the politicians in Annapolis think it should be spending it on (health insurance), in fine fascist fashion. (Fascism was an economic system whereby private property was permitted, but its use was strictly regimented and controlled by government authorities, supposedly “in the public interest”).
