Maryland Democrats to form "Blue Dog" Caucus

January 16, 2012 J

The Baltimore Sun is reporting that a delegation of House Democrats is forming a “centrist” caucus in the House of Delegates.

How many Democrats will join we will soon see.

Americans for Prosperity Maryland hopes that this new legislative Caucus will be willing to stand up the status quo in Annapolis by refusing to legislate higher taxes on Maryland’s middle class and will cease to create a less business friendly environment.

During the 2011 General Assembly the TEA Party Caucus was formed by Del.Mike Smigiel as a bi-partisan group to concentrate on budgetary and tax issues facing Maryland.

Del. Kurt Anderson, a Democrat from Baltimore, was forced out of the Caucus by his own party after joining in an attempt to find common ground.

AFP Maryland hopes these groups actively recruit members of both Houses of the Legislature to oppose job killing taxes, like increasing the sales or gas tax, which will disproportionately hurt Maryland’s middle class.
