Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley accused his New Jersey counterpart and other "tea party governors" of being reckless with their drive to
cut spending, The Hill
reports. Speaking at a fundraiser Saturday night in Virginia, O'Malley said:
"The tea partying Republican governors would have us believe a lot of things that just aren't so. They would have us believe that we can somehow eat cake and lose weight. They would have us believe that we can just cut our way to a better future -- no need to invest in education or rebuild our infrastructure. ...
"At the Republican governor's tea party, where colorful characters like [New Jersey Gov.] Chris Christie preside, there is no need to pay bills, no need to protect bond ratings, no need to invest in the future," O'Malley said. "Down is up, up is down; candy is a vegetable, and vegetables are candy."
