Honestly, this sort of thing speaks for itself. You'll never confuse the vast majority of Democrats in the Maryland General Assembly with Elizabeth Warren.

I'm not sure I understand why 'community' is always set up as a polar opposite to 'business.' Most places I've lived, small business helps define the community.

Maryland Reporter reports:

Md. legislature ‘would be a lot worse’ for business if not for Senate leaders, Kasemeyer says.

By Len Lazarick

At its annual legislative wrap-up session April 30, the Howard County Chamber of Commerce heard from Dels. Gail Bates and Warren Miller, moderator Mike Fowler of BGE, Sens. Ed Kasemeyer and Allan Kittleman.

At its annual legislative wrap-up session April 30, the Howard County Chamber of Commerce heard from Dels. Gail Bates and Warren Miller, moderator Mike Fowler of BGE, Sens. Ed Kasemeyer and Allan Kittleman.

“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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
