Md. Legislature ‘Would Be A Lot Worse’ For Business If Not For Senate Leaders, Kasemeyer Says.

“If it weren’t for the more moderate leadership in the Senate, things would be a lot worse than what they are” in the Maryland General Assembly, Sen. Ed Kasemeyer told Howard County business leaders Wednesday.

Kasemeyer, Democratic chairman of the Senate Budget and Taxation, said on business issues like combined reporting and the minimum wage that leaders like himself are keeping progressive forces at bay. Kasemeyer was addressing the annual legislative wrap-up of the Howard County Chamber of Commerce, a group in which he served as president in 1980 before his election to the legislature.

Sen. Allan Kittleman, a Republican running for Howard County executive, agreed that the minimum wage “could have been a whole lot worse” for business interests.

"would be a lot worse" Ha Ha, I don't think so. Its as bad as it can be. So a Dem leader's only defense to bad policy enactments is it "would be a lot worse" without him. How pathetic.
