Instead, he continued to take a bipartisan tone by not only praising both parties for having "chosen action over apathy" and focusing on legislation that many Marylanders can get behind like continuing to fight opioid and heroin addiction, reforming government ethics and transparency, calling for an independent committee to re-draw the state's congressional and legislative districts, and pre-empting Democrats' plans for paid sick leave with a compromise solution.
That's not to say there aren't legitimate questions about some of Hogan's proposals and claims. On education, for example, much of Hogan's "record spending" in the budget is related to state funding formulas that he couldn't avoid even if he wanted to. Meanwhile, he wants to offer more government support for private schools through funding scholarships.
While there are certainly some concerns about how quickly changing national policies, such as health care, are going to affect Marylanders, those may be addressed in due time when it becomes more clear what the actual impact will be. Hogan made clear during the election season that he did not endorse or vote for Trump. It's also not his job to decry every move the president makes. There are plenty of others taking care of that, rightly or wrongly.
Rather, Hogan is focused on the job he was elected to do — governing the state of Maryland by focusing on problems within his purview. Perhaps his critics should spend their time doing the same.
