House again dodges vote
on Republicans’ income tax rollback amendment
Append the Beacon Hill Rule: “Don’t speak when you
can nod, don’t nod when you can wink” – with, don’t vote when you can
For those who wondered what kind of Speaker DiMasi was going to be, now
we know: a continuation of leadership tyranny – where Democrat
legislators are cowards and sheep needing protection from controversial
issues by a “ruling of the chair” that prevents a direct roll call vote
on an issue.
The income tax rollback will not go away. CLT and taxpayers will haunt
them through October, we will haunt them on the November anniversary of
the popular vote to rollback the rate, we will be at the November 15th
hearing on CLT’s rollback bill. They can hide but they can’t run.
