Extorting Wal-Mart

From The Joplin Globe re the Maryland Health Care Act:

You may not like Wal-Mart - indeed, you may even actively dislike the world's largest retailer - but what the state of Maryland is trying to do in forcing the company to either increase spending on employee health care or pay a similar amount in higher taxes is simply, well, unfair and discriminatory.

The law, which was written so that it applies only to Wal-Mart, is nothing less than extortion.
