Friday the 13th
Let us celebrate the day by placing a curse on any Massachusetts
politician who proposes a "temporary" tax.
And, just in time for our celebration:
Incredibly, in this 16th year of the "temporary" income tax hike of
1989, State Senator Richard T. Moore (D-Uxbridge), who has consistently
opposed restoring the 5 percent income tax rate as promised, has
proposed what he has the temerity to call a "temporary" increase in the
state sales tax. According to a May 11 article in the Worcester Telegram &
Gazette, his local daily, Sen. Moore suggested earlier this week that
"the state may have to consider a ‘temporary’ sales tax increase to
overcome cost overruns totaling $1.3 billion for 420 local school
projects across the state."
Any suggestion of another ‘temporary" tax while we are still paying the
last "temporary" tax is an insult to the intelligence of all
CLT hereby curses Senator Moore to be laughed out of town.
snicker snicker ha etc.
For anyone who would like to laugh at
Moore directly, his State House office number is 617-722-1420.
