Massachusetts - Dumber Than Dishwater
Okay, so taxpayers will be paying MORE for LESS. Got it?
Full article here.
Well, flashback a mere 8 months ago to the election. Remember Mass Morons had a chance to ELIMINATE the state income tax. Not only did they take a pass, they voted down the repeal RESOUNDINGLY.
For more on that, read - Massachusetts- More Morons Than Your State!.
So why would anyone possibly vote FOR an income tax?
Well, people like my father were led to believe that his state pension would be cut.
And, others were led to believe that *local aid* would be slashed. In other words, their local government school budgets would get hammered.
Time and again I heard the essence of the latter. People were afraid that if income taxes were eliminated, that their *services* would really suffer.
But now Mass pols have cut services AND increased taxes!!!
In some ways I really do hope the Morons here keep electing the SAME politicians....so that this economic death spiral can speed up a bit.
