I know it says Citizens for Limited Taxation on the
letterhead, but until March 2, 2004, we would like you to call us
"Citizens for Justice, Fairness, and the Children."
Especially when we say we really like Rep. Scott Brown.
The reason we don’t want the word "Tax"
in our title for now is
that we wouldn’t want to be mistaken for the "Coalition for
Taxpayer Protection," which is running radio attack ads against
Rep. Brown and in support of his Democrat opponent for the open Senate
seat vacated by Cheryl Jacques.
Former Sen. Jacques had a 7% taxpayers rating from
CLT, and we are quite sure her chief of staff, who is running for the
seat, will not be an improvement. In fact, heaven protect us taxpayers
from Angus McQuilken and his coalition of public employee unions,
which make up the so-called "Coalition for Taxpayer
Rep. Brown has a 100% rating with CLT, and also
from our new title, Citizens for Justice, Fairness and the Children,
as well as from Advocates For Sweet
Children, Mothers, Elves (AFSCME);
the Coalition Against Ridiculous Public Sector Pensions; the
Real Defenders of the Working People; Citizens for
Accountability, Responsibility, the Environment (CARE); and The
We thought you should know that Scott Brown kept
his "no new taxes" pledge and voted to support the income
tax rollback passed by the voters in 2000.
To the best of our knowledge, the so-called
"Coalition for Taxpayer Protection" is composed of the same
people who want to raise the income tax rate to 5.95 percent. What is
it they are protecting taxpayers from, exactly?
This news release is sponsored by Citizens
Against the Coalition for Taxpayer Protection.
